Ike Ekweremadu, a Nigerian legislator, has been accused of organ harvesting, which has led the University of Lincoln in the United Kingdom to suspend him from his position as a visiting professor of Corporate and International Linkages.
As may be remembered, Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice were detained on Thursday and subsequently charged in London for allegedly conspiring to remove the kidney of Ukpo Nwamini David, a 15-year-old boy.
The defense argued that David was brought into the UK illegally from Nigeria using a man’s passport who was 41 years old.
The university’s spokeswoman told the London Mail that Ekweremadu’s responsibilities there had been temporarily halted.
According to the institution’s spokesman, visiting professors are frequently non-resident at the university, unpaid, and consultative.
We have serious concerns about the nature of these claims, but we are unable to say further at this time since there is an ongoing police investigation.
The Lincoln University visiting professor will not do any tasks while the situation is under review.
Two weeks ago, Ekweremadu tweeted shortly after being appointed by the university: “It was a joy and an honor to receive a letter of appointment from the University of Lincoln, UK, as Visiting Professor of Corporate and International Linkages.”
An original copy of the Magna Carta was another prized present I received. Approximately 807 years ago, in 1215, it was founded.
