Their daughter Sonia, 25, cried when she was acquitted of the same charge on Thursday. The jury found they allegedly conspired to bring a 21-year-old Lagos street vendor to London to exploit him for a kidney.

The victim, a 21-year-old street vendor from Lagos, was brought to the UK last year to donate a kidney to Sonia in an £80,000 private transplant at London’s Royal Free Hospital.
