British prosecutors are alleging that they conspired with others, including a Nigerian-based family member identified as Isaac Ekweremadu, to arrange the travel of a 21-year-old man with a view of removing one of his kidneys for Sonia, who has a kidney-related disease.

Ike and Beatrice Ekweremadu were arrested after the young man claimed he was a victim of trafficking at Staines police station.

He claimed he never consented to the tests carried out on him and was treated like a slave upon arriving the UK. The alleged victim also said that he escaped from the house he was kept and was homeless for three days before going to the police.

The trial will begin at the Old Bailey on January 31 before High Court judge Mr Justice Adam Johnson.
