The University of Lincoln has banned Ekweremadu for alleged organ trafficking

0

Former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu has been banned from doing any more work as a visiting professor at the University of Lincoln.

This is because he was accused of bringing a 15-year-old boy to the UK so that his organs could be taken.

Mr. Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, are being held in the UK on these charges until July 7, when they will go to court.

They have both said that the charges of trafficking are false.

Before he was arrested, Ekweremadu had been in the UK for at least two weeks. Ten days before he was caught, he met with people from the Nigerian community in Britain in Lincoln.

He had taught at the University of Lincoln as a visiting professor of business and international links.

But a spokesperson for the university told the British tabloid Daily Mail that he can’t do anything official for the school.

“Visiting professors often do not live at the university, work for free, and give advice,” the spokesperson said.

“We are very worried about what is being said, but since the police are still looking into it, we can’t say much more at this point.”

“While this matter is being looked into, this person will not be doing any work at Lincoln as a visiting professor.”
