The last definitely has not been heard on the allegation of organ harvesting levelled against former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, and the wife, Beatrice.
This is because the young man who was said to be the victim, David Nwamini Ukpo, has taken to his Facebook page to explain how he met Senator Ekweremadu and was allegedly lured from Nigeria to London for the harvesting of his kidney without his consent.
Ekweremadu, and his wife, Beatrice, were arrested in London by the Metropolitan Police on Thursday and charged with the alleged crime of trying to bring a child to the UK to allegedly harvest organs, DAILY GIST reports.
It was gathered that the investigation was launched after detectives were alerted to potential offences under modern slavery legislation in May 2022.
On Friday, documents emerged which showed that the alleged victim who was said to be a 15-year-old-child may actually be 21 years.
A letter written by Ekweremadu also suggested that the lawmaker disclosed to the British embassy why he was taking David Ukpo to London.
But David Ukpo in a post obtained by DAILY GIST on Saturday denied any knowledge of why he was ferreted to the United Kingdom other than the promise of a good job and better life.
David Ukpo narrated his side of the story in the Facebook post to back up his claims.
The post Titled “My journey to UK”, David Ukpo’s 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 am not interested and asked me why I told him I don’t have money for that.
“He just started laughing to me and told me he is going to introduce me to senator his company in UK need workers, so he could start my visa processing.
“I have no other option than to accept the offered, 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.
