A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, to release the official bio-data of David Nwamini to Ike Ekweremadu, and his wife, Beatrice.

This is following the suit the former Deputy Senate President and his wife filed against NIMC and four others seeking an order directing them to produce the Certified True Copy of the biodata of David Ukpo Nwamini.

The court has therefore directed the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), and two commercial banks to release Nwamini’s details in their possession to the couple.

Counsel to the couple and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Adegboyega Awomolo,  had prayed the court that Nwamini’s National Identification Number (NIN), which is in the possession of the NIMC, should be produced for the purpose of facilitating the criminal investigation and tendering same to establish his client’s innocence.

Senator Ekweremadu and his wife are being detained by the United Kingdom authorities over charges of conspiring to bring a child to Britain for organ harvesting with Nwamini said to be the victim.

Following their arrest by the London Metropolitan Police, they were arraigned before Uxbridge Magistrate Court which ordered that they should be remanded in custody till July 7 while investigations continue into the allegations against them.
