The Ebonyi State Government says it is reaching out to the family of David Ukpo, the individual contacted by the former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, to donate his kidney to the lawmaker’s ailing daughter.

 The state Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Uchenna Orji, disclosed this in a statement he signed and made available to newsmen on Sunday in Abakaliki.

Orji said the state government was reaching out to the family because the touted donor is from the state.

“Ukpo’s information to the metropolitan authority of the United Kingdom orchestrated the criminal charge incidented against Ekweremadu and his wife (Beatrice).

“The state government is following the turn of events and twists, which followed the medical intention of the former deputy senate president, over the health condition of his daughter, Sonia.

“These circumstances led to the detention of the senator and his wife in the United Kingdom (UK).

Orji urged the UK government to act progressively and meticulously while critically looking at the intention of the detained family and “That they be given the benefit of the doubt.”

The commissioner reiterated that the state government would stand with Ekweremadu at “this trying moment.

“We hope that the truth and nothing but it shall guide the outcome of the matter” he added. (NAN)
