Organ Harvesting: Nigerian Immigration Service Reveals Age Of ‘Organ Donor’

Nwamini David Ukpo, the young Nigerian at the center of the “organ donor” story that resulted in the detention of former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, in the UK, is 21 years old, according to information released by the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) on Sunday.

The revelation was revealed by the NIS Comptroller General, Isa Jere, during the debate concerning Ukpo’s age, with some sources stating he is just 15 years old.

However, following a conversation with journalists, the NIS director stated in a statement that the applicant’s letter of indigeneity and the National Population Commission’s (NPC) birth certificate record all match the date of birth listed on the details submitted for verification, which is 12-10-2000.

Prior to the passport being authorized and granted, he claimed that all necessary precautions were taken to thoroughly review the supplied paperwork.

The NIS director stressed that the organization was not associated with any age-falsification schemes or other dubious dealings involving the ongoing scandal.

Jere said: “The attention of the Service has been drawn to the trending issue in connection with an alleged case of age falsification on a Nigerian Standard Passport issued by Nigeria Immigration Service to a Nigerian who is alleged to be at the centre of an investigation of the case of “organ harvesting”.

“The Service wishes to set the record straight by informing the general public that the suggestions that it did not properly vet the breeder documents issued by the applicant during his passport application are not only off the mark, but mere fabrications aimed at tarnishing the image of the Service.

“The facts of the matter concerning the case above, therefore, are that the said Mr. David Ukpo Nwamina applied and paid for the enhanced standard passport using the NIS portal after which he approached the Gwagwalada Passport Office, FCT Abuja, on the 2nd November, 2021 for his interview. To support his application, Mr. Nwamina presented all the necessary documents required, including his National Population Commission (NPC) issued Birth Certificate, showing 12 October, 2000, as his date of birth; his National Identity Number (NIN) corroborating the date of birth on his birth certificate, issued by NIMC; a letter of introduction issued by Ebonyi State Government Liaison Office situated at Maitama District Abuja, and a Guarantor’s form duly signed by one Mr. Uchechukwu Chukwuma Ogbonno.

“In view of the above, the general public may wish to be informed that the date of birth, or any other information for that matter, on any Nigerian passport is printed on the document only after a thorough vetting process that involves both physical and forensic examination of the applicant’s breeder documents. Mr. Nwamina’s case, therefore, was not different.

“While assuring of the Service’s commitment towards protecting the integrity of the passport, the Service wishes to seize this opportunity to appeal to the general public to desist from making such unfounded utterances as they are capable of denting the image of the Service.”
