David Ukpo has asked a Federal High Court in Abuja to set aside its July 1 order to release his bio-data for use in a London court in Senator Ike Ekweremadu’s alleged organ harvesting trial.
Ukpo claimed that his fundamental rights to a fair hearing and personal privacy had been grossly breached.
He argued that neither he nor the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, as Chief Law Officer of the Federation, was made a party in the suit.
He stated this in a motion he filed through his lawyer, Bamidele Igbinedion.
In the motion, Ukpo prayed Justice Inyang Eden Ekwo to reverse the order permitting the release of his bio-data to Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, for their defense before Uxbridge Magistrate Court in London.
According to the motion, the defendants are National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, Comptroller General, Nigeria Immigration Service, Stanbic IBTC Bank, United Bank for Africa, UBA, and Nigeria Inter-bank Settlement System.
Ukpo prays the court to restrain the defendants, their agents, privies, staff, and workers from releasing any information concerning him to Ekweremadu and his wife for their defense in the London court.
