David Nwamini, The 21-year-old man at the centre of the Ike Ekweremadu organ trafficking scandal says he has fears about returning to Nigeria.
Nwamini’s statement was read in court on Friday at the sentencing where the former Deputy Senate President, Ekweremadu, his wife, Beatrice and the doctor-middleman, Obinna Obeta, were sentenced to 10 years and 8 months, 4 years and six months, and 10 years imprisonment respectively.
He had told the UK court that he was approached with an opportunity to work in the UK, which he had always dreamed of but never thought would happen.
“He (Dr Obina Obeta) did not tell me he brought me here for this reason. He did not tell me anything about this.
“I would have not agreed to any of this. My body is not for sale.
“I worry for my safety in Nigeria. Those people can do anything. I think they could arrest me or kill me in Nigeria.
“My plan now is to work and to get an education and to play football,” David said, adding that he does not want to claim compensation from the “bad people” as it would be “cursed and bad luck”.
The victim added that someone visited his father in Nigeria and asked the father to get him to drop the case.
