Ekweremadu: Date For Court Ruling In Ukpo Case Fixed

A Federal High Court in Abuja has fixed December 5 for ruling on an application filed by David Ukpo, the kidney donor in the Ike Ekweremadu case.

Ukpo filed the application asking the court to set aside its orders made on July 1 and July 6 which gave Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice access to his biodata.

Per a News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) report, Justice Inyang Ekwo fixed the date after counsel for parties in the suit adopted their processes and presented their arguments.

Ukpo through his lawyer Bamidele Igbinedion filed the motion marked FHC/ABJ/CS/984/202, urging the court to set aside the orders, directing some government agencies and banks to release his biodata to the former Senate President and his wife.

He also listed the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) as the (1st respondent) and four others in the application.

Ukpo is presently in the United Kingdom in connection with the alleged organ harvesting charge against the Ekweremadus.

Addressing newsmen after the hearing, Igbinedion stated that public information is covered by Freedom of Information Act which authorises the court to disclose public information where proper application is made.

“What Ekweremadu sought was not public information but private information of a Nigerian citizen", Igbinedion said.
