The suspension followed the arrest and subsequent arraignment of the lawmaker and his wife, Beatrice Ekweremadu, in London for alleged conspiracy to harvest the kidney of a 15-year-old Ukpo Nwamini David.

The London Mail yesterday quoted the university’s spokesperson to have said that Ekweremadu’s duties at the institution had been suspended for the time being.

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

Ekweremadu had, soon after the university appointment two weeks ago, tweeted: “It was a pleasure and an honour to receive a letter of appointment by the University of Lincoln, UK, as Visiting Professor of Corporate and International Linkages.

“I also got a highly treasured gift – a copy of the Magna Carta. It was created in 1215, about 807 years ago.”
