UK: Nigerians charged in child organ harvesting case

British police have arrested two Nigerian nationals, accused of trying to bring a child to the UK to harvest his organs, the BBC reported.

Police in London said the man and woman – Beatrice and Ike Ekweremadu – had been remanded in custody and would appear in court later on Thursday.

The force said a child had been taken into care.

According to the police, the investigation was launched after detectives were alerted to potential offences under modern slavery legislation last month.
