Letter Shows Senator Ike Ekweremadu Applied for Kidney Transplant Visa
A letter purported written by embattled Senator Ike Ekweremadu has shown that he told the British High Commision about his intention of taking a boy abroad for a kidney transplant for his daughter.
The letter was shared by politician, Dino Melaye.
Melaye had said he supports Ekweremadu.
The letter accompanied the visa application the senator made for the boy addressed to the British High Commission in Abuja.
According to the letter, Ekweremadu applied for a visa for the boy named David Nwamini Ukpo on December 28, 2021.
However, the boy being a minor might have triggered the arrest of the former Deputy Senate President and his wife.
Part of the letter read: “I am writing in support of the visa application made by Mr. Ukpo Nwamini David who is currently having medical investigations for a kidney donation to Ms. Sonia Ekweremadu.
“David and Sonia will be at the Royal Free Hospital London, and I will be providing the necessary funding. I have enclosed a statement of my bank account.
“Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require additional information.” Some Nigerians have been sharing a photo of the letter on socia media.”
