The case marked the first time defendants have been convicted under the Modern Slavery Act of an organ harvesting conspiracy. Though it is lawful to donate a kidney, it becomes criminal if money or another material advantage is rewarded.

A Nigerian senator, his wife and a medical “middleman” have been jailed for conspiring to traffic a market trader to the UK to harvest his kidney.

Politician Ike Ekweremadu, 60 and his wife Beatrice, 56, stood trial accused of a conspiracy to bring the man to Britain from Lagos so he could provide an organ for their 25-year-old daughter Sonia Ekweremadu.
