Court grants Ekweremadu’s wife bail

Ike Ekweremadu and Beatrice Ekweremadu

The wife of a former Deputy Senate President, Beatrice Ekweremadu has been granted bail while her husband, Senator Ike Ekweremadu was denied bail by the Old Bailey court, London.

Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice were arrested by the British police on June 23 on allegations of human trafficking and organ harvesting that violate the country’s Modern Slavery Act.

The couple appeared before the court last week Friday for a bail hearing. Beatrice was charged with facilitating the travel of another person with a view of exploitation, between August 1 last year and May 5, under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

On the other hand, the Senator was charged with conspiracy to arrange or facilitate the travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting.

According to Dailymail, The Common Serjeant of London, Judge Richard Marks, said: “The position is that I have granted bail to Beatrice subject to some fairly stringent conditions but I have refused bail to Ike.’

Prosecutors do not appeal the decision, the court heard. The couple will appear again before the Old Bailey court on Thursday, the 4th of August.
