Document shows Ekweremadu informed UK high commission about daughter’s kidney donor

NEWS DIGEST – The former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, had in December 2021, written a letter to the British high commission about a kidney donation for his daughter.

This is according to a copy of a letter to the UK high commission, seen by THE NEWS DIGEST on Thursday.

In the letter, the former deputy senate president said he was writing in support of a visa applicant who was scheduled for “medical investigations for a kidney donation to Ms Sonia Ekweremadu”.

He said the donor and his daughter “will be at the Royal Free Hospital London”, adding that he would “be providing the necessary funding”.

“I have enclosed a statement of my bank account,” he added.

“Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require additional information. Please accept the assurances of my highest regards.”

The News Digest reports that on Thursday, the UK metropolitan police announced that Ekweremadu and his wife were charged to court over the allegation of bringing a child to the UK for organ harvesting.
