Organ Harvesting Saga: Court Orders Immigration, Others to Release ‘Donor’s’ Details

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered the release of the official details of the alleged organ donor, David Nwamini to a former Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, and his wife, Beatrice.

This followed an originating summon filed by Senator Ekweremadu and his wife through their counsel, Adegboyega Awomolo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).

Justice Inyang Ekwo, who gave the order in a judgement delivered on Friday, directed the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), and two commercial banks (Stanbic-IBTC and UBA) to release Nwamini’s details in their possession to the couple.

By the court order, all official information in relation to Nwamini, including the account opening package, are to be released to Ekweremadu and his wife to ascertain his real age.

metrowatchonline recalls that Ekweremadu and his wife were recently arrested in the UK by police authorities for alleged conspiracy to facilitate the travel of Nwamini, alleged to be a minor, for organ harvesting.

The couple who were later arraigned before a Magistrate Court, however, denied the allegations. In an originating summon marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/984/2022, dated and filed June 27 by their counsel before Justice Ekwo, the Ekweremadus prayed the court for an order directing the NIMC, Stanbic-IBTC and UBA banks to supply them with the Certified True Copy (CTC) of the biodata information of Nwamini.

The applicants said Nwamini’s National Identification Number (NIN): 19438077110 and Bank Verification Number (BVN): 22509616391, which is in the possession of the respondents, should be produced for the purpose of facilitating the criminal investigation and tendering same to establish their innocence with respect to Nwamini’s age in the criminal charges against them before the UK’s Magistrate Court.
