David Nwamini Ukpo, the young man involved in the organ harvesting allegations against a former Deputy Senate President of, Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, has broken his silence. David Nwamini Ukpo, whose kidney was to be harvested for Sonia, the daughter of the former Senate President, said he was lured to the UK and the move was without his consent.
Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, have been arrested and charged in the UK for attempting to harvest the kidney of David Nwamini Ukpo. They were denied bail by a London magistrates’ court where they were arraigned hours after their arrest last Thursday, June 23, 2022.
David Nwamini Ukpo on Facebook on Saturday, June 25, 2022, shared his side of the story in a post titled, ‘My journey to UK.’
His unedited post reads; “On one fateful day I met a man named Okoro in a building site where I was working for my daily bread, Okoro told me he like me, he want to help me achieve my dream because he saw me as a great person. He told me, could you like to work in UK. I just started laughing because I don’t have money for that, then I told him, no I am not interested and he asked me why and I told him I don’t have money for that.
“He just started laughing at me and told me he is going to introduce me to a Senator in his company in UK and that they need workers, so he could start my visa processing.
“I have no other option than to accept the offer, after two day the man came to the building site again and told me the Senator wanted to see me so we could start the visa processing, then I dropped my shovel and head pan and went to bath immediately.
“Mr Okoro took me to an unknown area where I haven’t been before, I was afraid maybe he is a money ritualist, I encouraged myself since I knew Mr Okoro for a very long time and convinced myself there won’t be any problem. Mr Okoro hand me over to one young man wearing a suit, he told me everything about the job, then I told him that Mr Okoro has already explain everything to me and I have accepted to work in UK.
“There later gave me a room on that mansion and snap me a passport photographs and told me that there will start my visa processing immediately. The kind of food I ate there my generations haven’t eaten it before. I was so happy staying in that house. After a week their told me my visa and passport are ready. They told me we are going to leave tomorrow, and so I was taken to the airport from there we land in UK and I was taken to a hospital in UK.
“When we landed in the hospital in UK I was told I must go for a medical test to check my health status, if I am fit for the job I accepted without any question. I thank God for doctor Harry who was the medical doctor attending to me, he told me everything and I told him why I am here and he later called police for my rescued. And that was how Senator Ike Ekweremmadu and his wife were arrested in UK,” David Nwamini Ukpo concluded.
