Meanwhile, Uche has offered to donate her kidney to save the daughter of the Ekweremadus.
In a video interview that has now gone viral on social media, the lady explained the need to save Sonia's life.
She said, “I want to do that because I need to help the girl she is dying. They have already showed me in my dream that I should help the girl.”
“I’ve already seen her long time ago, even this morning I still had the same dream so I need to do it fast “ Uche added.
When asked if her offer comes with any demand, Uche said she has no demands for now, but she's on a mission to save the child's life which is more important.
