Ike Ekweremadu, former deputy senate president, and his wife, Beatrice, have been arrested and charged for bringing a child to the UK for organ harvesting.
They have been remanded in custody and will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court today.
Charges were brought against the pair, who are from Nigeria, following an investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime team.
A child has now been safeguarded.
The investigation was launched after detectives were alerted to potential offences under modern slavery legislation in May 2022, the force said.
