Beatrice Ekweremadu, the wife of former Nigerian Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has been granted bail by a British court.
Ekweremadu and his wife were charged for facilitating the flight of a young Nigerian man, David Ukpo, to the United Kingdom, for the aim of harvesting his kidney.
The couple were accused of arranging the trafficking of the 21-year-old boy, in order to have his kidney transplanted into their daughter, Sonia, who has renal problems.
Ekweremadu and his wife appeared for a bail hearing at the Old Bailey.

In contrast to Ekweremadu, whose bail was rejected, his wife’s was approved by the court.
Beatrice received strict bail restrictions from the Common Serjeant of London, Judge Richard Marks.
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.”
