The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has faulted comments by Nigeria’s Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, on the trial of former Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate, Ike Ekweremadu in the United Kingdom.

Mr Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, were on 23 June arrested in the UK by London Met Police and charged with conspiracy to traffic a person to the United Kingdom in order to harvest his organs.

But the senator was denied bail because he was said to be a flight risk.

Mr Malami told reporters that the Nigerian government would not interfere in the case.
