▪︎ Wife gets four years jail 

▪︎ Dr Obetan serve for 10 years; with medical licence suspended

Former Deputy Senate President of Nigeria, Ike Ekweremadu, has been sentenced to nine years and eight months in prison for organ trafficking plot by UK court.

The court also sentenced his wife, Beatrice, to four years six months while the medical doctor who manipulated the process, as a ‘middleman’, Dr Obinna Obeta got 10 years.

He, in addition, got his medical licence suspended, according to a report by BBC Pidgin.

They were sentenced, having been found guilty of organ-trafficking plot against a 21-year-old man they allegedly trafficked from Lagos to the UK in March 2022.

Senator Ike Ekweremadu, 60, his wife Beatrice, 56, and Dr Obinna Obeta, 50, were found guilty of conspiracy to exploit the kidney of the 21-year old man contrary to the provisions of the modern slavery laws.

Authorities had said that the victim was a street trader taken from Lagos to the UK last year to provide his kidney for £80,000 private transplant at the Royal Free Hospital in London.
