Daughter to Nigeria’s former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, Sonia has taken to Instagram to beg for a kidney donor.
The 25-year-old explained that she had to drop out of her postgraduate studies in 2019 because she was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease called FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome.
Recall that the London metropolitan police had on June 23 arrested and detained her father alleging he conspired to arrange the travel of a child into the UK in order to harvest organs for her.
The senator has since denied the allegation, insisting through his lawyer that the boy in question (Ukpo Nwamini David) accepted to donate his kidney before being flown into the UK.
She pleaded to the general public to come to her aid and save her life as she is battling rare kidney disease.
“I dropped out of my postgraduate studies at the University of Newcastle in 2019 when I was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease, FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome.
“My family has battled to save my life and has taken me to various hospitals but the illness persisted and kept degenerating.
“I’m alive today by the special grace of God. I am presently in London, UK, receiving five hours of dialysis 3-4 times a week. This is at the expense of my family as I am not qualified for NHS due to immigration status,”
“The charges being faced by my parents in London presently are directly connected to my illness and have complicated matters for me and my family. I do not intend to delve into details of this unfortunate development as the matter is still in court.
“In the circumstance above, I am appealing to anybody whom it may please to assist me willingly with a kidney donation in the name of God”.
