A former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and his wife, Beatrice, have been found guilty of organ trafficking in the United Kingdom.

The duo alongside their daughter, Sonia, and a medical doctor, Dr Obinna Obeta, were found guilty of facilitating the travel of a young man to Britain with a view to his exploitation after a six-week trial at the Old Bailey.

The jury found on Thursday that they criminally conspired to bring the 21-year-old Lagos street trader to London to exploit him for his kidney.

The judge, Justice Jeremy Johnson, will pass sentence later, The Guardian UK reports.
