David Nwamini Ukpo, the young man involved in the controversial organ harvesting saga that landed Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice in trouble in Britain, has taken to his Facebook wall to explain how he met the Senator and was allegedly lured from Nigeria to London for the harvesting of his kidney without his consent.
Ukpo narrated his side of the story in a Facebook post on Saturday, June 25, 2022, where he also posted his Visa page to back up his claims, even as Senator Ekweremadu and his wife remain in detention, having been denied bail by a London magistrates’ court where they were arraigned hours after their arrest on Thursday, June 23, 2022.
“On one fateful day, I met a man named Okoro in a building site where I was working for my daily bread. He told me he likes me and want to help me achieve my dream ambition because he saw me as a great person. He told me, if I would like to work in UK? I just started laughing because I don’t have money for that. Then, I told him I’m not interested and he asked me why? I told him I don’t have money for that.
“He just started laughing at me and told me he is going to introduce me to a senator and that his company in UK needs workers, so that he could start my visa processing.
“I have no other option than to accept the offer. After two days, the man came to the building site again and told me the senator wanted to see me so we could start the visa processing, then I dropped my shovel and head pan and went to bath immediately.
“Mrs koro took me to an unknown area where I haven’t been before, I was afraid maybe he is a money ritualist. However, I encouraged my self since I have known Mr. Okoro for a long time, there will be no problem. Mr. Okoro handed me over to one young man wearing a suit, he told me everything about them, and I told him Mr. Okoro has already explained everything to me and I have accepted to work in UK.
“Next day, this young man introduced me to another man, immediately I saw the man I greeted him, I don’t know his name then he told me he is the owner of the company that wants workers in UK and asked me if am interested to work and I said yes sir immediately with happiness all over my heart.
“They later gave me a room on that mansion and snapped me a passport photograph and told me they will start my visa processing immediately. The kind of food I ate there my generation hasn’t ate it before. I was so happy staying in that house. After a week, they told me my visa and passport are ready and we are leaving tomorrow. I was taken to airport from there we land in UK and I was taken to a hospital in UK.
“When we landed in hospital in UK I was told I must go for a medical test to check my health status, if I’m fit for the job I accepted without any question. I thank God for Doctor Harry who told me everything and I told him why I’m here and he later called the police for my rescue
