The daughter of a Nigerian senator appeared in court on Monday accused of trafficking a homeless man into the United Kingdom to harvest his organs for herself, the Daily Mail of UK reported on Monday.
Sonia Ekweremadu, 25, is accused alongside her father, Ike Ekweremadu, 60, her mother, Beatrice Ekweremadu, 56, and 50-year-old doctor, Obinna Obeta.
They are all charged with conspiracy to arrange the travel of another person with a view to exploitation.
It is alleged they conspired together, with others unknown and with another family member, Isaac Ekweremadu, to arrange the travel of a 21-year-old with a view to exploiting him between 1 August 2021 and 5 May this year.
They facilitated his travel from Lagos to London to remove one of his kidneys, it is claimed.
Sonia has a kidney-related disease and has been on dialysis for some time, the court has been told.
