The trial hearing of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and his wife, Beatrice over organ trafficking which was earlier scheduled for Monday (today), will no longer hold as planned the Central Criminal Court popularly known as Old Bailey, the United Kingdom has disclosed. 

Recall that Ekweremadu and his wife, on July 23, 2022, were being charged with Dr Obinna Obeta, on allegation of wanting to make payment for the procurement of an organ for their daughter, Sonia, from one David Nwamini.

Following the allegation, Ekweremadu was detained in a UK prison after the June 23 arrest.

But, according to the latest report, the court submitted that it will not be sitting due to the non-availability of Sonia, whose case was established.

‘The court official didn’t categorically say whether the Ekweremadus’ sickly graduate daughter, Sonia, is now a defendant in the case, for which her parents were arrested. The Old Bailey official said they won’t have to wait for long, as the “case will be re-listed for sometime during the week,’ the report added.

The court official maintained that although Monday, October 31, 2022, was fixed when the couple and their co-defendant appeared before the judge on August 4, Sonia wasn’t listed in the hearing then, adding, ‘the judge won’t be hearing the case because ‘there’s no counsel for Sonia.’

The Eastern Updates had a month ago reported that shortly after the 25-year-old ailing daughter of Ekweremadu, Sonia, took to social media to appeal to the public to save her from the life-threatening battle with kidney disease, a lady, Annastasia Olamma, 24, offered to donate her kidney.

The Eastern Updates recalls that on Monday, Sonia in a statement posted on her Instagram handle @soniaekw, narrated her ordeal since 2019 when she was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease, FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome, and what her family has passed and still passing through.
