Senator Ike Ekweremadu has been banned by the University of Lincoln, United Kingdom, after being appointed a visiting professor of Corporate and International Linkages.
This is coming after the Nigerian lawmaker and his wife, Beatrice was arrested by British police for allegedly conspiring to harvest the kidney of one Ukpo Nwamini David who claims to be 15 years old.
London Mail yesterday quoted the university’s spokesperson as saying that Ekweremadu’s duties at the institution have been suspended for the time being.
The University’s spokesperson said;
“Visiting professors are often, as is in this case, non-resident at the university, unpaid and advisory.
“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.”
