Kidney Harvest: ‘I’m scared, can’t return to Nigeria’, Nwamini begs for stay in UK

The would-be kidney donor in the organ trafficking case that landed Senator Ike Ekweremadu, 60, in prison, David Nwamini, has said he wants to stay and work in the UK since "they could arrest or kill me in Nigeria."

His impact statement was read in court during the sentencing of Ekweremadu 60, his wife, Beatrice, 56, and the doctor-middleman, Obinna Obeta, 51, who were sentenced to prison today, read here.

David said he was approached with an opportunity to work in the UK, which he had always dreamed of but never thought would happen.

He (Dr Obina Obeta) did not tell me he brought me here for this reason. He did not tell me anything about this.

"I would have not agreed to any of this. My body is not for sale.

"I worry for my safety in Nigeria. Those people can do anything. I think they could arrest me or kill me in Nigeria.

"My plan now is to work and to get an education and to play football,” David said, adding that he does not want to claim compensation from the “bad people” as it would be “cursed and bad luck”.

Recall that, the Ekweremadu were arrested on June 21 last year as they arrived at Heathrow Airport.
