Ekweremadu’s accuser fears arrest or harm in Nigeria, appeals to UK.



David Nwamini, the key figure in the arrest and conviction of former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, has expressed his desire to stay in the United Kingdom. During the sentencing hearing, David, who was to be a kidney donor in the organ trafficking case, made a statement in which he talked about his wish to remain in the UK and pursue his education, work, and football career.

David stated that he was not aware of the true nature of the opportunity to work in the UK and that he had no intention of selling his body. He also expressed concerns about his safety in Nigeria and stated that he does not want to claim any compensation from those involved in the organ trafficking case.

The former Senate President, his wife, and the middleman who brokered the organ donation deal were all sentenced to prison terms after being found guilty of serious offenses related to organ trafficking. The sentencing judge made it clear that neither a fine nor a community sentence was an appropriate punishment given the gravity of their crimes.

David’s statement was significant because he was instrumental in bringing the organ trafficking conspiracy to light, and the UK authorities hailed his bravery in doing so.
