Ekweremadu: We Have Not Heard From Our Son, I Don’t Know If He Is Alive Or Dead- Ukpo’s Mother

The family of David Ukpo, who was taken to the United Kingdom by former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu for a kidney transplant, has expressed deep concern over their inability to contact their son following Ekweremadu’s conviction and sentencing, as reported by Vanguard.

Ekweremadu, along with his wife Beatrice, was sentenced on March 23, 2023, at the Central Criminal Court, Old Bailey, in the UK. He received nine years and eight months in prison, while his wife was sentenced to four years and six months for their roles in organ trafficking. They, along with Obinna Obeta, a doctor who acted as a middleman, were accused of attempting to convince doctors at the Royal Free Hospital in London to perform an £80,000 transplant on 21-year-old David Ukpo, falsely presenting him as a cousin of their daughter, Sonia Ekweremadu.

In their village of Ndioffia Ishieke in Ebonyi State, David’s family revealed they have not heard from him since the incident unfolded.

Mary Ukpo, David’s 46-year-old mother, lamented the uncertainty surrounding her son’s whereabouts.

She said, “I don’t know if my son is alive or not because I have not heard from him since 2022.

“The last time I saw him was in 2021 when he came to the village. I am begging anyone who knows where my son is to please grant me access to speak to him.

“We heard Ike Ekweremadu has been sentenced to prison, but until this very moment, we have not heard from our son. It’s been years now, and I don’t know if he is alive or dead. David is my son and first child. I just gave birth to another child in his absence, which makes it seven younger ones that are next to him.”
