A highly competent Ekweremadu insider revealed how Ekweremadu’s daughter, Sonia Ekweremadu, had developed terminal renal disease and needed an urgent transplant, and the publicised child, Ukpo Nwamini  David,  aged 15, brought from Lagos, Nigeria, volunteered to donate his kidney. But upon arrival in London, it was discovered, after medical examination, that his kidney did not match that of Sonia.

As the proposed donor, David, did not want to return to Nigeria, but remain in the UK, he went to the authorities to falsely report that he was trafficked to London for possible organ harvest so as to garner sympathy with a view to being offered asylum in the UK.

But the error said to have been committed by the Ekweremadus was not being able to re-verify that the child was actually 15 and not 21 they had given as his age.

Following this, the suspicious eagle-eyed British detectives, hence launched an investigation after being alerted by a physician to potential offences under modern slavery legislation in May. This was after his (the doctor’s) several lab examinations, leading him to discover that the donor was a minor and could not have willingly consented to the procedure.

The highly reliable Ekweremadu insider, however, affirms that the former Deputy Senate President and his wife were not, ipso facto, involved in any plot to harvest the organ of the minor for commercial gain and against his will.

By simple understanding, organ harvesting is the process of removing parts of the body, often for commercial gains and against the will of the victim, which is not the case in this circumstance.

Excepts of a medical visa application to the British High Commission, titled “Re: Medical  visa application for Ukpo Nwamini David, authored by Senator Ike Ekweremadu and dated  December 28th 2021, read thus: “I am writing in support of the  visa application made by Mr.Ukpo Nwamini David who is currently having  medical investigation for a  kidney donation to Miss Sonia Ekweremadu.

“David and Sonia will be at the Royal  Free Hospital  London, and I will be providing the  the neccessary  funding. I have enclosed a statement of my bank account.”

The State Online reports that the United Kingdom Metropolitan Police had arrested former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and his wife, Beatrice, for planning to harvest an organ of a child.

This was contained in a statement released on Thursday, June 23, 2022, by the Metropolitan Police, saying the couple has been charged to court following an investigation by the police’s specialist crime team.

The police added that the investigation was launched after detectives were alerted to potential offences under modern slavery legislation in May 2022.

The statement reads inter alia: “Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu, 55 (10.9.66) of Nigeria is charged with conspiracy to arrange/facilitate travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting,” 

“Ike Ekweremadu, 60 (12.05.62) of Nigeria is charged with conspiracy to arrange/facilitate travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting.

“They have both been remanded in custody and will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court later today.

“A child has been safeguarded and we are working closely with partners on continued support. As criminal proceedings are now under way, we will not be providing further details,” the statement said.

The State Online further reports that Ike and Beatrice Ekweremadu had both appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on charges relating to the conspiracy for human trafficking for organ harvesting.

The alleged victim in this case is a homeless 15-year-old boy who was brought to the U.K. by Senator and Mrs. Ekweremadu off the streets of Lagos Nigeria.

The Ekweremadus have been denied bail and thereafter remanded in custody, as case was adjourned to July 7, 2022 for continuation of hearing.

Ekweremadu who is a chieftain of the major opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has served as Nigerian Deputy Senate President representing Enugu West Senatorial District since 2003, until the last Senatorial dispensation./SHARE THIS
