Beatrice Ekweremadu, wife of the former Nigerian Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has been granted bail by a United Kingdom court.
However, the Senator’s bail request was denied.
The couple were accused of trafficking a young Nigerian to the UK for the purpose of harvesting his kidney.
According to reports, Ekweremadu and his wife were plotting to traffic the 21-year-old to transplant his organs to their daughter who is suffering from kidney failure.
Ekweremadu and his wife appeared at the Old Bailey for a bail hearing.
The Common Serjeant of London, Judge Richard Marks, granted Beatrice bail under stringent conditions.
The judge said, “The position is that I have granted bail to Beatrice subject to some fairly stringent conditions, but I have refused bail to Ike.”
