The 15-year-old David Ukpo lured from Nigeria to the UK to donate his kidney to Ike Ekweremadu’s daughter, has shared his own side of the story.
The Daily Page recall that Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice were arrested in the UK over their involvement in the controversial organ harvesting saga.
Reports have it that Ekweremadu’s daughter, Sonia reportedly had kidney related problem and had been undergoing dialysis and needed a kidney transplant to survive.
A willing donor was however found by the family in Nigeria whose name was given as Ukpo Nwamini David and travel documents were secured for him that enabled him to travel to UK.
Given his own side of the story, Davido Ukpo explained how he met the Senator and was allegedly lured from Nigeria to London for the harvesting of his kidney without his consent.
David Ukpo narrated his side of the story in a Facebook post on Saturday, June 25, 2022, where he also posted his Visa page to back up his claims, even as Senator Ekweremadu and his wife remain in detention, having been denied bail by a London magistrates’ court where they were arraigned hours after their arrest on Thursday, June 23, 2022.
