Senate sends delegation to London regarding Ekweremadu’s case

-O. Adejo

The Nigerian Senate has announced that a high-powered delegation will travel to the United Kingdom following the arrest of Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, in connection with the alleged purported organ harvest against the Ekweremadus.

VIP Magazine reports that Senator Ahmad Lawan, President of the Senate, announced, shortly after a closed-door session of the Senate, that the delegation of the Upper Chamber would be made up of members of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa (Bauchi North) will lead the delegation. The members would liaise with the Nigeria High Commission in London to get briefs on the matter.

Lawan, who noted that the Senate will continue to engage the Nigeria High Commission on the matter relating to Ekweremadu, stated that he had a robust engagement with the Nigeria High Commissioner, Ambassador Ishola Sarafa, on the alleged organ harvesting, adding that they will continue to support their colleague as Senators.

Senate resolutions followed a motion regarding the arrest of the former Deputy Senate President and his wife in London last week on conspiracy and organ harvesting charges.
