Organ Harvesting: Ekweremadu’s wife detained In Europe’s Largest Female Jail – Report 


Report said, Beatrice, wife of the former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, is being held at HMP Bronzefield prison in the United Kingdom. 

HMP Bronzefield is an adult and young offender female prison located on the outskirts of Ashford in Surrey, England. Bronzefield is the only purpose-built private prison solely for women in the UK, and is the largest female prison in Europe.  

The prison is operated by Sodexo Justice Services. 

Recall that the couple are facing prosecution in the UK for bringing one David Ukpo to the UK to harvest his kidney for their daughter, whose own has packed up and in need of a transplant.  

 Ukpo’s real age has equally divided opinion as it is said in the UK’s quarter that he is 15-years while his Nigeria’s official document reveals he is 21.  

SahararReporters said Beatrice is in detention at the Europe’s largest prison, a facility that accommodates 572 women and comprises four house blocks housing approximately 130 women on each one. 

“Each wing has a servery unit for women to collect their food which they can choose to eat together on the wing or take back to their cells. We provide telephones in each room which is integral in helping women to maintain their family ties,” the services said on its website. 

“The women are unlocked at 08:00hrs for breakfast and to receive any medication they may require. At 09:00hrs the women will go to their lessons or work. They will break for lunch at 12:00hrs for two hours. In the afternoon they will return to their work location. At 16:30hrs the women will return to their houseblocks for association and dinner before lock up at 18:45hrs,” it added. 

The Uxbridge Magistrate Court last week denied Beatrice access to Ekweremadu who is being detained in another prison.
