David Nwamini Ukpo, the young man whose name is behind the travails of Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, has come out on social media to tell his own side of the story.

According to him, he was promised a job in the United Kingdom while he was hustling to make ends meet in Lagos, and was never informed that he was going there to donate a kidney to anyone.

Below is the unedited version of his story:

My journey to UK,

On one fateful day I met a man named Okoro in a building site where I was working for my daily bread, Okoro told me he like me, he want to help me achieve my dream because he saw me as a great person. He told me could you like to work in UK I just started laughing because I don’t have money for that, then I told him no am not interested and asked me why I told him I don’t have money for that. He just started laughing to me and told me he is going to introduce me to a senator, that his company in UK need workers, so he could start my visa processing.

I have no other option than to accept the offer. After two days, the man came to the building site again and told me the senator wanted to see me so we could start the visa processing, then I dropped my shovel and head pan and went to bath immediately. Mr Okoro took me to unknown area where I haven’t been before, I was afraid maybe he is a money ritualist, I encouraged my self since I knew Mr Okoro for a long time there will be no problem. Mr Okoro hand me over to one young man wearing a suit, he told me everything and I told him Mr Okoro has already explained everything to me and I have accepted to work in UK.

Next day the young man introduced me to another man immediately I saw the man I greeted him, I don’t know his name then he told me he is the owner of the company that want workers in UK and ask me if am interested to work I said ‘yes sir’ immediately with happiness all over me.

They later gave me a room in that mansion and snap me a passport photographs and told their will start my visa processing immediately. The kind of food I ate there, my generation haven’t eaten it before. I was so happy staying in that house. After a week their told me my visa and passport are ready their told we are going to leave tomorrow, I was taken to airport from there we land in UK I was taken to a hospital in UK.

When we landed in hospital in UK I was told I must go for a medical test to check my health status, if I’m fit for the job I accepted without any question. I thank God for doctor Harry who told me everything and I told him why I’m here and he later called police for my rescue.
