82 days Senator Ekweremadu still in detention, daughter seeks kidney donor

13 Sept 2022

Sonia Ekweremadu, the ill daughter of imprisoned former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, has made a public plea for kidney donors to save her life.

The Specialist Crime Team of the Metropolitan Police in London, United Kingdom, had reportedly detained Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, for allegedly smuggling a child into the nation in order to harvest his organs, according to The PUNCH.

They were taken into custody in June 2022 at London's Heathrow Airport and were later charged in a UK Magistrate's Court.

A criminal court in London granted release to Ekweremadu's wife, but denied it to the senator, who has been detained by UK police since June 23.
According to checks done as of today, Ekweremadu had been incarcerated for no less than 82 days after his detention in the UK. His lawsuit was just postponed until October 31, 2022.
But as the politician remains imprisoned, his ill daughter, who voiced concern for her father's health in an emotive Instagram post on Monday, pleaded for the public to help her by giving a kidney.

Sonia, a University of Coventry graduate in media and communications, chronicled her suffering on Instagram under the handle @soniaekw. She said she left her postgraduate program after learning she had a rare kidney ailment.

In the statement titled, “Appeal for Kidney Donation by Sonia Ekweremadu,” the 25-year-old wrote, “I, Sonia Ekweremadu, hereby appeal to the general public to come to my aid and save my life. I was diagnosed with rare kidney disease, FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome.
