Journalist offers kidney to Ekweremadu’s daughter

Journalist John Adi who offered kidney to Ekweremadu daughter

A journalist based in Kaduna John Adi has offered to donate one of his kidneys to Sonia Ekweremadu, the sick daughter of former deputy Senate president, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.

Ms Ekweremadu on Monday made a public call for kidney donation to save her life.

She said in a statement that she had to drop out of the university in 2019 after being diagnosed with a rare kidney disease.

Announcing in a Facebook post titled “Willing to save a soul” on Friday morning, Mr Adi explained that he is making the donation based on God’s directive on the love of one’s neighbour.

He wrote, “I, Comrade John Femi Adi, a Kaduna based journalist and farmer hereby announce my ‘agape’ decision to donate one of my kidneys to Senator Ekweremadu’s beautiful daughter.

“I am doing this on God’s order in the Holy Bible to Love our neighbours as ourselves. For further communications, reach me via my official phone number -: 08034210833.”

A couple of others have also offered their kidneys.

Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice are facing charges of organ harvesting in the United Kingdom. The couple took a young man, David Ukpo, to London to donate his organ to Sonia but Ukpo reported them to the police, alleging he was forced.
