Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu, 55, and Ike Ekweremadu, 60, both from Nigeria, have been remanded in custody and will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court later today. They are both charged with conspiracy to arrange or facilitate travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting. But given the suspects are appearing in court in Uxbridge, it is likely they were held at the nearby Heathrow Airport. In 2017 a former Nigerian government minister claimed that migrants from his country were having their organs harvested after being sold into slavery. Femi Fani-Kayode, a onetime aviation minister in Nigeria, claimed that 75 per cent of slaves who have their organs harvested in North Africa are from his country.
