UK University suspends senator Ekweremadu as visiting lecturer 



The University of Lincoln, United Kingdom, has suspended embattled former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, whom it recently appointed as a visiting professor, Corporate and International Linkages.

This comes amid charges against Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice Nwanneka for allegedly conspiring to traffic a child to the European country for organ harvesting.

The alleged victim, one Ukpo Nwamini David was said to have been trafficked from Nigeria and entered the UK with the passport of a 41-year-old man.

The London Mail yesterday quoted the university’s spokesperson as saying that Ekweremadu’s duties at the institution had been suspended for the time being.

“Visiting professors are often, as is in this case, non-resident at the university, unpaid and advisory,” the university’s spokesperson said.

“We are deeply concerned about the nature of these allegations, but as this is an active police investigation, we cannot comment further at this stage.

“Whilst this matter is subject to investigation, this person will not be undertaking any duties as visiting professor at Lincoln.”

Ekweremadu in a tweet on June 12 noted, “It was a pleasure and an honour to receive a letter of appointment by the University of Lincoln, UK, as Visiting Professor of Corporate and International Linkages.

“I also got a highly treasured gift – a copy of the Magna Carta. It was created in 1215, about 807 years ago.”
