The Westminster magistrate court in the UK has ruled that David Ukpo, a purported KIDNEY donor for the daughter of Ike and Beatrice Ekweremadu, is not a minor.
The court gave the ruling on Thursday when Ekweremadu, a former deputy president of the senate, and Beatrice, his wife, appeared before for trial.
Arise TV reports that the ruling came after Ukpo has admitted to the court that he is 21 years old and had been in the UK since February but only presented himself to the police in May.
The senator representing Enugu west and his wife are facing charges bordering on conspiracy to arrange/facilitate the travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting.
Meanwhile, Ekweremadu and his wife have been sent back to the correctional facility while the court resumes on August 4.
