Senator Ike Ekweremadu has been sentenced to nine years and eight months imprisonment by a United Kingdom court, in the first case under UK's modern slavery laws.

Ekweremadu, his wife Beatrice, and a certain Dr Obinna Obeta were sentenced for their role in trying to illegally secure a kidney for  Sonia, a 25-year-old daughter of Ekweremadu. 

Beatrice Ekweremadu has been sentenced to four years and six months imprisonment, while Dr Obeta would spend the next 10 years in prison.

The trio was arrested and charged after an unnamed 21-year-old boy had told doctors in the UK that the Ekweremadus had ‘tricked’ him to the UK to harvest his organs for their daughter.
