Oyogist has learned that a magistrate’s court in London has remanded senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice in custody.
This comes after they were denied bail.
It was gathered that Ekweremadu was charged to court alongside his wife for trafficking a 15-year-old homeless Lagos boy with the intention to harvest his organs.
The arrest was announced by the London Metropolitan Police on Thursday, with officials saying the couple would be charged promptly before a court in Uxbridge.
Mr Ekweremadu appeared before a magistrate on Thursday afternoon and was denied bail. The case was subsequently adjourned until July 7.
