UK Varsity Suspends Ekweremadu As Visiting Professor

Former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu’s employment as a visiting professor at Lincoln University in the United Kingdom has been suspended.

Following his arrest for human trafficking for the purpose of organ harvesting in the UK, Ekweremadu was suspended by Lincoln University.

Just over a week ago, the organization invited Ekweremadu to serve as a visiting professor of Corporate and International Linkages.

Prior to the conclusion of the UK police investigation into the former Nigerian Deputy Senate President and his wife Beatrice, Lincoln University stated that it would refrain from making any further comments on the subject.

A spokeswoman for Lincoln University stated that visiting professors are frequently non-resident at the university, unpaid, and consultative, as is the case in this instance.

The claims’ nature genuinely worries us, but we are unable to speak further at this time because a police investigation is ongoing.

“This person will not be performing any obligations as a visiting professor at Lincoln while this situation is under review.”

Ekweremadu, a senator from Enugu West Senatorial District, and his wife Beatrice were detained by UK Metropolitan Police on Tuesday for allegedly conspiring to take a minor’s organs.

The prosecutor revealed the youngster is a 15-year-old boy named Ukpo Nwamini David during the couple’s arraignment at the Uxbridge Magistrate Court in London.

According to reports, Ekweremadu and his wife facilitated David’s admission into the UK so that his kidney might be transplanted into their ill daughter.

David didn’t know he was in the UK to donate a kidney until he arrived for his hospital meeting with the Ekweremadus, according to the prosecutor.

David might not be aware that he is a kidney donor, according to a specialist at the Royal Free Hospital in Camden, London. The doctor also questioned the minor’s passport’s assertion that he was 41 years old.

In the meantime, a copy of a letter purportedly sent by Ekweremadu explaining the issue to the British High Commission has been making the rounds on social media.
