Ekwemeradu: Court sets December 5 for ruling on Ukpo’s application

A Federal High Court in Abuja, on Tuesday, fixed December 5 for ruling on an application filed by David Ukpo, the kidney donor, asking the court to set aside its orders made on July 1 and July 6 which gave former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and wife, Beatrice, access to his biodata.

Mr Ukpo, through his lawyer, Bamidele Igbinedion, had filed a motion on notice marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/984/202, urging the court to set aside the orders, directing some agencies of government and banks to release his biodata to Ekweremadu and his wife.

Mr. Ekweremadu and his wife insist that Mr. Ukpo is up to the legal age of consent.

The couple are facing charges bordering on organ harvesting before a court in the UK.
