Social media has been in a frenzy since Thursday afternoon after a British news website published a report that is likely about former Nigerian deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.

The report said, a Nigerian couple, 55-year-old Nwanneka Ekweremadu, and 60-year-old Ike Ekweremadu, were involved in a child organ trafficking scandal.

According to the Met Police in a statement, the couple will appear at the Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on Thursday after they were formally charged with “conspiracy to facilitate the travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting.”

Social media users are guessing the Nigerian suspects to be the former deputy senate president and his wife.
