AISHA YESUFU REACTS AS UK AUTHORITIES ARREST EKWEREMADU OVER ALLEGED ORGAN HARVESTING
According to her, such cases may have been happening in the country as people keep going missing.
A socio-economic Activist, AISHA YESUFU has reacted to reports making the rounds that two Nigerians were arrested in the United Kingdom over alleged organ harvesting.
Reports emerged earlier on Thursday that a former Deputy President of the Senate, IKE EKWEREMADU and his wife, BEATRICE NWANNEKA EKWEREMADU were arrested in the UK for allegedly facilitating the “travel of another person with a view to exploitation, known as “organ harvesting”.
BraveViews gathered that the Metropolitan Police has already arraigned the 55 years “BEATRICE NWANNEKA EKWEREMADU and charged her with conspiracy to arrange/facilitate travel of another person with a view to exploitation, known as organ harvesting.
According to a statement:
“Ike Ekweremadu, 60 (12.05.62) of Nigeria is charged with conspiracy to arrange/facilitate travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting”.
In her reaction, the Activist, AISHA YESUFU, in a tweet on her official Twitter handle expressed fear over the development.
She said such cases may have been happening in Nigeria, as people keep going missing.
“How many missing people are related to organ harvesting? How many such cases have been happening in countries where they do not care and corruption is rife? How many are even happening here! This is scary,” she tweeted.
While there has been no formal confirmation of the senator’s identity, even though his name and his wife’s match, Mr. Uche Anichukwu, media aide to Ekweremadu promised to revert after calls were put in to confirm the report.
