JUST IN: Immigration Confirms Real Age Of Ekweremadu’s Kidney Donor, David Nwamini—-The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) has revealed the real age of Nwamini David Ukpo, the man at the centre of the alleged kidney transplant saga involving former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice.
Isah Jere Idris, Comptroller-General of NIS said Ukpo is actually 21 years old.
He said the passport was actually issued by the organisation with the due process followed to the letter and with the date of birth of Nwamini as October 12, 2000, meaning he is now 21 years old.
By this revelation, the actual age of Nwamini as an adult shown in his travelling document is contrary to his claim before the British Police that he is a 15-year-old minor, upon which Ekweremadu and his wife were arrested.
He spoke virtually in an interaction with the newsmen to put the record as regards the passport controversy straight.
According to him, the passport was issued in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, on November 2, 2021.
Meanwhile, Ekweremadu, a serving senator and his wife whose one of their daughters is suffering from kidney failure and needed a replacement from a donor who was supposed to be Nwamini were both arrested by the British Metropolitan Police at the airport upon arrival in the UK.
The two of them were accused of child trafficking which is contrary to international law and consequently arraigned for that before Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court last week.
They were both denied bail while their case is adjourned till July 7.
