Photo of the alleged 15-year-old boy, Ukpo Nwamini David, allegedly trafficked by former Nigerian Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice has surfaced online.


Ekweremadu was arrested by the London Metropolitan Police for allegedly trafficking the boy from Nigeria to the United Kingdom to harvest his kidney for transplant to his daughter, who has been on dialysis for something now.


According to reports from multiple sources, the couple procured a passport and visa for him and brought him to UK. He was kept in a house where he was used as a help pending the surgery to remove his organ.


On the appointed date, the operating surgeon directly asked the boy of his age and he said 15 as against the 21yrs he was supposed to say.


The doctor thereafter dismissed him and cancelled the surgery.


The boy was taken back to the family where he worked as a help but he escaped after some days and went to a police station and narrated the whole story.


Ekweremadu was placed under investigation and was arrested on Tuesday on his way to Istanbul to procure another organ for his daughter.


He has been charged today and remanded in custody. His next court appearance will be on the 7th of July.


A letter showing Senator Ekweremadu applied for his visa has also surfaced online.
