Public sympathy appears to be growing by the day for former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and his family in their current travails in London, United Kingdom.
From Ilorin, the Kwara State in North-Central Nigeria, a lady, who identifies herself as Martha Uche has volunteered to donate her kidney to save Sonia, the sick daughter of the lawmaker.
The woman, in a short video that has gone viral, claims she saw Sonia in her dream and had received a divine instruction to donate a kidney to her to save her life.
She said it was the second time she was receiving the message, hence she would not be asking for any form of favour whatsoever in return.
Sonia is currently sick and placed on regular dialysis with doctors recommending urgent organ transplant.
The lady’s good gesture comes in the midst of the travails of Sonia’s parents who are currently held in London detention facility for alleged conspiracy and trafficking of a young Nigerian, Ukpo Nwamini David to the United Kingdom to have his kidney harvested for their daughter.
However, Ukpo’s international passport and National Identity Number, NIN produced in June 2021 and his Bank Verification Number, BVN done in January 2019, appear to have put paid to his claims of being a minor.
Also, his Type D Visa (Medical Visit) and a letter said to have been written by Ekweremadu to the UK High Commission in Abuja might go a long way in the couple’s effort to disentanglement themselves from the legal web in the UK.
