While Ekweremadu was denied bail, Beatrice was granted bail on Monday.

According to the Common Serjeant of London, judge Richard Marks: “The position is that I have granted bail to Beatrice subject to some fairly stringent conditions but I have refused bail to Ike.’

Ike Ekweremadu and his wife were arrested and detained by the Metropolitan Police, London, over alleged conspiracy on organ harvesting of one David Ukpo Nwamini.
