Ekweremadu’s UK arrest: Fresh document shows organ donor is over 21 years

Fresh facts have emerged on the travail of the former Deputy Senate President, Senator lke Ekweremadu and his wife, Mrs Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu, over their alleged role in human trafficking and organ harvesting.

The prosecutors told the court on Thursday, that the Ekweremadus were being charged for bringing the 15-year-old boy from Nigeria to the UK with the claim that he was to be given a better life in the UK but was actually to harvest his organ.

The prosecutors told the court that the former Deputy Senate President procured a passport for the boy and claimed he was 21 years old but discovered that he was 15 years old.

The Trumpet gathered that the organ was not harvested after the boy truthfully disclosed his age to the doctors at the Royal Free Hospital in the UK.

The doctor cancelled the procedure and the boy was immediately taken into the custody of the family who according to the prosecutors treated him like a slave until he escaped and found his way to the police where an investigation started, leading to the arrest of the couple.

But contrary to the claim by the British prosecutors Ukpo David Nwamini’s official National Identification Number, NIN shows that he’s truly not underage and above 21years, The Trumpet gathered.

According to the document sighted by our correspondent, the donor was born on the 12th of October, 2000. This means he’s over 21 years and corresponds with the claim on his visa application.
