Ike Ekweremadu, a former deputy senate president, apparently did not receive bail from a British court, but Beatrice Ekweremadu did.
Authorities in the UK detained Ekweremadu and his wife on charges that they had brought a juvenile illegally to the country in order to remove his kidney.
However, after his credentials were made public, it was made clear that the victim was not a kid but rather was 21 years old.
The congressman and his wife were charged with preparing to traffic the victim to the UK for a kidney transplant on their daughter.
Since their arrest, Ekweremadu and his wife have been kept in custody for the crime.
The ex-Deputy Senate President and his wife attended a bail hearing at the Old Bailey on Monday.
Senator Ekweremadu was not given bail, while the wife was.
Judge Richard Marks, the Common Serjeant of London, granted Beatrice bail with strict restrictions.
The judge said: “The position is that I have granted bail to Beatrice subject to some fairly stringent conditions, but I have refused bail to Ike.”
