A Nigerian politician and his wife have been charged with plotting to traffic a homeless 15-year-old boy to Britain to harvest his organs. Police said the boy, who the court was told was homeless, had been safeguarded. He is also a principal at a law firm and has been influential in Nigerian politics for several decades. The couple have been charged with conspiracy to arrange and/or facilitate travel of another person with a view to exploitation. Mr Ekweremadu in his prepared statement denied allegations of human trafficking.
