Ekweremadu: Victim Requests Court Not To Share Biodata

David Ukpo, the accused target of Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice’s alleged organ harvesting, requested on Tuesday that the Federal High Court in Abuja reverse its July 1 decision to reveal his biodata for use in a London court during Ekweremadu’s trial.

While criticising the court’s procedures that resulted in the order being issued, Ukpo stated that his fundamental rights to a fair trial and privacy had been gravely violated.

His complaint was that neither he nor the Attorney General of the Federation, the nation’s top legal representative, had been added as parties to the lawsuit.

In a motion of notice he filed through his lawyer, Bamidele Igbinedion, Ukpo prayed Justice Inyang Eden Ekwo to reverse the order permitting the release of his biodata to Ekweremadu and his wife for their defense before Uxbridge Magistrate Court in London.

According To Lawyer, Ukpo Offered To Give Kidney To The Daughter Of Ekweremadu

The applicant is praying the Court to restrain the defendants, their agents, privies, staff, and workers from releasing any information concerning him to Ekweremadu and his wife for their defense in the London Court.
