Oyogist has learned that the University of Lincoln in the United Kingdom, has banned Senator Ike Ekweremadu who was recently appointed a visiting professor of Corporate and International Linkages.
This followed Thursday’s arrest and subsequent arraignment of Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, in London for alleged conspiracy to harvest the kidney of 15 years old Ukpo Nwamini David.
David, according to the prosecution, was trafficked from Nigeria and entered the UK with the passport of a 41-year-old man.
The London Mail yesterday quoted the university’s spokesperson as saying that Ekweremadu’s duties at the institution have been suspended for the time being.
“Visiting professors are often, as is in this case, non-resident at the university, unpaid and advisory,” the university’s spokesperson said.
“We are deeply concerned about the nature of these allegations, but as this is an active police investigation, we cannot comment further at this stage.
“Whilst this matter is subject to investigation, this person will not be undertaking any duties as visiting professor at Lincoln.”
