The trial hearing of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and his wife, Beatrice over organ trafficking which was earlier scheduled for Monday (today), will no longer hold as planned the Central Criminal Court popularly known as Old Bailey, the United Kingdom has disclosed.
Recall that Ekweremadu and his wife, on July 23, 2022, were being charged with Dr Obinna Obeta, on allegation of wanting to make payment for the procurement of an organ for their daughter, Sonia, from one David Nwamini.
Following the allegation, Ekweremadu was detained in a UK prison after the June 23 arrest.
But, according to the latest report, the court submitted that it will not be sitting due to the non-availability of Sonia, whose case was established.
