Ekweremadu: Immigration affirms alleged kidney donor is 21 years old

The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) yesterday affirmed that David Nwamini who was alleged to have been trafficked to the United Kingdom for organ harvest by former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and wife, Beatrice is 21 years old and not 15 as claimed by him. The date on his issued Birth Certificate, reads, 12 October, 2000.

The Comptroller-General of Immigration, Mr. Idris Jere said due process was followed to the latter because the said donor brought supporting documents during the application process that put his age at 21.

This was just as Ebonyi State yesterday said it was reaching out to the family of the alleged organ donor to the senator’s ailing daughter.

Jere said documents like his National Population Commission (NPC) issued birth certificate, his National Identity Number (NIN) issued by NIMC, a letter of introduction issued by Ebonyi State Government Liaison Office situated at Maitama District Abuja, and a Guarantor’s form duly signed by one Mr. Uchechukwu Chukwuma Ogbonno, all tallied, hence he was issued a Standard Nigerian Passport.

He also disclosed that the Home Office in the UK has not made any contact with the NIS to repatriate the said donor, Nwamini.

Jere, who said the NIS took out time to investigate the authenticity of the passport obtained by Nwamini, said due process was followed in the application and issuance.
