Ike Ekweremadu’s Ordeal Continues As UK Court Returns Him To Prison, Adjourns Trial To October 31

The ordeal of the former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, continues as a United Kingdom Court returned to custody as his trial on alleged human trafficking and organ harvesting was adjourned to October 31.

Ekweremadu first appeared before the Uxbridge magistrates’ court in London, United Kingdom, where he denied all the charges against him.

Both the lawmaker and his wife were denied bail and remanded in custody while the case was adjourned to July 7 and later August 4, 2022.

But in a new twist, Beatrice, Ekweremadu’s wife, was granted bail under strict conditions, following an application filed by the defendant counsel.

The bail was granted on July 22, 2022. However, a similar bail application for Ekweremadu was denied by the Court on Thursday.

For the record, at the last sitting, the court ruled that the victim in this case is no longer a minor, meanwhile only Ekweremadu is in custody while his wife had been granted bail.

Adamu Bulkachuwa, Senate committee chairman on Foreign Affairs, was in court to show support for Ekweremadu.
