David’s brother, Jonathan Ukpo Nwamini, was also earlier quoted in the media saying that they were into phone accessories business in Lagos.
In another report, the youth wing of apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation which is the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, has openly lauded the United Kingdom over the bail which had been granted to Beatrice who is the wife of former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
The Eastern Updates reports that the OYC had in late June pleaded that Ekweremadu’s wife be granted bail to enable her attend to their ailing daughter. Few days ago, the lawmaker’s wife was granted bail.
Reacting through a statement on Wednesday, the National President of OYC, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike thanked the United Kingdom for the latest action on the matter.
