Alleged Organ Harvesting: Nigerian Government Speaks On Age Of ‘Victim’ In Ekweremadu’s Case

The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), on Sunday, confirmed the age of the alleged victim of organ harvesting, David Nwamini, as 21; contradicting the claims of prosecutors in London.

Isah Idris, the comptroller general of the NIS, in a Zoom briefing with journalists, said Mr Nwanini applied for his international passport which was issued after thorough checks by the passport issuing agency.

He said the documents provided by Mr Nwamini from the National Population Commission (NPC) and the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) gave his date of birth as October 12, 2000.

He added that Mr Nwanini was captured for the international passport on November 2, 2021, at the Gwagwalada office of the agency.

The London Metropolitan Police on Thursday charged former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu and wife Beatrice Ekweremadu for allegedly trafficking Mr Nwanini with the aim of harvesting his kidney.

On the same day, the Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court in London denied the couple bail.

  1. Why don’t we use robotics to fight this insurgency in our country. If we really need to make Nigeria work, we know the right things to do. Let’s continue to play politics with security and see who ll be mostly affected.
