UK University Suspends Ekweremadu As Visiting Professor

UK tertiary institution Lincoln University has suspended Nigerian lawmaker Ike Ekweremadu from his duties as a visiting professor.

Lincoln University announced the suspension of Ekweremadu following his arrest for human trafficking for organ harvesting in the UK.

The institution appointed Ekweremadu as a visiting professor of Corporate and International Linkages just over a week ago.

Lincoln University said it will not comment further on the matter until the conclusion of UK police investigation on the former Nigerian deputy Senate President and his wife Beatrice.

“Visiting professors are often, as is in this case, non-resident at the university, unpaid and advisory,” a Lincoln University 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.”
