David Ukpo Offered To Donate Kidney To My Daughter– Ekweremadu
Ike Ekweremadu, the senator representing Enugu West, claimed that David Ukpo offered to give his daughter Sonia a kidney.
Ekweremadu claimed that in order to make Ukpo’s trip to London for the organ transplant possible.
Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice were detained in London and charged with harbouring a minor in the country in order to harvest their organs.
While the trial for alleged organ harvesting is ongoing, the legislator and his wife are currently being held in custody in London.
Chief Adegboyega Awomolo, the attorney for Ekweremadu, asserted that Sonia had kidney failure for the previous five years.
Awomolo claimed in a statement to the Abuja Federal High Court that Ukpo had told Ekweremadu he was 21 years old.
The applicant’s daughter, Sonia Ekweremadu, has kidney failure, and the applicant has been taking care of her for about five years, he said.
“The applicants’ daughter, as stated, desperately needed a kidney transplant to survive.
If his kidney is compatible with Miss Sonia Ekweremadu’s, David Nwamini Ukpo has offered to donate one to the applicant’s daughter.
“Ukpo informed the applicants that he was born in the year 2000 and that he is twenty-one years old.
“The first applicant backed up Ukpo’s application for a visa to the UK with a letter to the British High Commission in Nigeria, outlining the reason for the trip: to allow him to receive medical care in the UK so that the donor and Sonia Ekweremadu receive the best care possible.
The Royal Free Hospital in London determined that the aforementioned Ukpo was not a suitable donor after conducting a number of medical tests because his kidney is not compatible with Sonia Ekweremadu’s.
Ukpo was asked to return to Nigeria after the test, according to the Senior Advocate of Nigeria, but he went to the UK authorities and asked to be prevented from doing so.
“Contrary to the information given to the applicants by the same Ukpo, Ukpo informed the UK police that he is fifteen years old.
“The applicants genuinely believe that Ukpo was at least 21 years old based on the public records held by the respondents,” they write.
The applicants are unable to access the said Ukpo because he is currently in the care of British authorities.
