Court orders NIMC, NIS to provide biodata of Ekweremadu’s ‘kidney donor’

Ike Ekweremadu

A federal high court in Abuja on Friday, ordered the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to release the certified true copy (CTC) of David Ukpo’s biodata.

Last month, the London Metropolitan Police arrested and charged former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, and his wife, Beatrice, to court for allegedly bringing a child (Ukpo) to the UK for organ harvesting.

The UK authorities said the “child” had “been safeguarded”, while the police said their operatives “are working closely with partners on continued support”.

Although the London police said Ukpo is 15, his passport and bank verification number (BVN) show he is 21.

In a suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/984/2022 and filed on June 27 by Adegboyega Awomolo, counsel to the senator and his wife, before Inyang Ekwo, justice of a federal high court in Abuja, the Ekweremadus prayed the court for an order directing the NIMC to supply them with the certified true copy (CTC) of Ukpo’s biodata.
