Senate breaks silence on Ekweremadu’s organ harvesting case, sends delegation to London

The Nigerian Senate has finally reacted to the arrest and remand of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, in the UK, over alleged organ harvesting.

The Senate resolved to send a delegation of its committee on foreign affairs to London to see the couple.

The delegation will leave for the UK in two days.

The resolutions were disclosed by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, at the end of a closed door session on Wednesday.

The Senate President also mandated its committee on foreign affairs to engage with the British High Commission to “find more details on the case as far as the Commission is involved.”

Lawan assured the family of Ekweremadu that more will be done, as a delegation will be sent to see the couple.

“There will be a delegation to London to see Senator Ekweremadu and his wife. The delegation on the senate committee on foreign affairs will leave in two days.

“We urge all institutions that can do anything to ensure that they do so, particularly the ministry of foreign affairs. And as for the Nigerian High Commission, we can ask for more but they have done us proud,” he said.
