Court record on Thursday quoted Senator Ike Ekweremadu of denying allegations of human trafficking levelled against him and his wife, Beatrice, by the the Metropolitan Police in London.
According to a report culled from Daily Mail, Ekweremadu lawyer and his wife, Beatrice, were said to have spoken in favour of the accused apparently in a bid to get them admitted on bail.
The report which trended on social media was titled “What Ekweremadu’s lawyers said.”
The report reads: “Mr Ekweremadu in his prepared statement denied allegations of human trafficking.
“‘He is a member of the bar in Nigeria. He is a principal in a law firm that bears his name.
“’Those issues taken together go way beyond him being a person of good character…rather that he has led a blameless life as a public servant.’
“Mr Irwin added that the allegations were ‘nothing short of preposterous’.
“Antonia Gray, for Mrs Ekweremadu, said: ‘She has never been complicit or involved in any alleged illegal trafficking of any young person.
‘She is a financial accountant with an unblemished record.’” The Nation.
