Nigerian govt vows not to interfere in Ekweremadu’s organ harvesting case in UK

Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, has stated that the Nigerian government will not intervene in the legal battle involving former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, who is on trial in the United Kingdom for alleged organ harvesting, Charmingpro reports 


Malami made the announcement to journalists on Thursday at the 46th State House Briefing at the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja.

“It has never been the Nigerian government’s practice to intervene in any judicial, local, or international matter.” And that is the government’s position.

“In response to Senator Ekweremadu’s intervention, I stated during my presentation that there has been a mutual legal assistance request and collaboration between Nigeria and other countries around the world.” “If the senator makes such a request, we will address it,” Malami said.

The UK Metropolitan Police charged Ekweremadu with conspiracy to facilitate the travel of another person for organ harvesting.

The 60-year-old and his wife, Beatrice, 55, allegedly arranged for a 21-year-old man to travel from Nigeria to the United Kingdom.

According to prosecutors, the couple intended to have his kidney removed so that it could be donated to their sick daughter.
