A Nigerian lady simply identified as Martha has offered to donate her kidney to the ailing daughter of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
Ike Ekweremadu Daughter
KanyiDaily recalls that on June 23, the Nigerian lawmaker and his wife, Beatrice Nwanneka, were arrested in London for allegedly trafficking a homeless boy from Lagos into the UK to harvest his organs for their ailing daughter.
The duo, who were arrested for alleged conspiracy to harvest the kidney of 15-year-old Ukpo Nwamini David, are both charged with conspiracy to arrange or facilitate the travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting.
On Thursday, the court heard how Ekweremadu and Beatrice trafficked the 15-year-old boy from Lagos into the UK with passport of a 41-year-old man, to transplant his organs to their daughter who suffers from kidney failure.
The couple were arrested at Heathrow on Tuesday before boarding a flight to Turkey – where it was suggested that the procedure could take place – the court heard.
On Saturday, a Journalist named Ibitoye Shittu said he met a lady who volunteered to donate her kidney to the lawmaker’s ailing daughter.
Martha revealed why she wants to donate her kidney to Ekweremadu’s daughter, saying she saw it in her dream that she needs to help the sick child of the politician.
She said: “I need to help the girl. She is dying. They have already showed me in my dream that I should help the girl. I have already seen it a long time ago. They have already showed me in my dream. I need to do this fast.”
Martha says she doesn’t have any demands as she just wants to save the sick lady’s life.”
Sharing the video, Ibitoye Shittu wrote: “So I met a lady (Marta) today in Ilorin who says she’s ready to donate her kidney for the daughter of Ike Ekweremadu….. She said she saw it in a dream that she should help the girl
“Let’s help her locate Ekweremadu’s family. Reach me if you need her contact.”

KanyiDaily had reported that a letter addressed to the UK Embassy and personally signed by the Senator indicated that the young man was to ‘donate’ a kidney to Ekweremadu’s daughter.
The former Deputy Senate President wrote to the British High Commission in Abuja, on December 28, 2021, 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”.
Although the police had said the donor was 15, data from his international passport and Bank Verification Number (BVN) indicate that Nwamini is actually 21-year-old, having been born on October 12, 2000.
Farouk Kperogi, a Nigerian professor who teaches journalism at the Kennesaw State University in the United States, alleged that Nwamini might have lied to get asylum in the United Kingdom.
Meanwhile, the UK court had denied Ike Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice Nwanneka bail and remanded them in custody until next month over the ‘organ harvesting’ allegation.
