Senator Ike Ekweremadu, former deputy senate President and wife were arrested at Heathrow airport, on their way to Istanbul, Turkey and according to the prosecutors, it is believed that they were on their way to procure another organ as they were unable to harvest the organ of the boy. The prosecutors also stated that $20, 000 was found on Mr. Ekweremadu.
Even though a letter the embattled senator sent to the British High Commission (embassy) has surfaced, it is still not enough for the trouble this has brought the Ekweremadu’s.
According to AriseTV, the red flag that stopped the organ from not being harvested came after the boy truthfully disclosed his age to the doctors at the Royal Free hospital in the UK. The doctor reportedly canceled the procedure.

After much deliberation, the Magistrate ordered their remand in custody till July 7 for the next hearing on the case.
