Former Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu may not be expected home in Nigeria soon as his trial in connection with alleged plot to harvest organ of a 21-year-old man has been rescheduled to May 2023 by the British court overseeing the matter. 

The Court reckoned that thre said May next year was the earliest date they could get following numerous strikes within the British legal system.

 AriseTV in its report states that the trial, which resumed Thursday, failed to get a plea bargain only for Beatrice Ekweremadu’s trial to be rescheduled to November 31, with the official trial set to begin in May 2023.

Although the London court adjourned the pre-trial hearing till October 31 The Daily Crucible, however, learnt that the trial judge, Richard Marks, said a provisional trial will begin by May 2, 2023, with an estimated length of three to four weeks.

Prior to Thursday’s outcome, the prosecutors claimed they planned to have the 21-year-old man’s kidney removed so it could be given to their daughter, who suffers from severe kidney disease.

They also claim that the 21-year-old is said to have refused to consent to the procedure after undergoing tests at the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead, north-west London. This comes despite counter-claims by the Ekweremadus’ that he was in agreement to donate his kidney to help the sick girl.

The BBC reported that it was the alleged mistreatment as a “slave” that pushed him to escape the custody of the Ekweremadus and report to Staines police station in Surrey.
