The police command in plateau, have apprehended two more medical practitioners in relation with an alleged case of illegal human organ harvesting involving Noah Kekere, who is believed to be posing as a qualified doctor.
The State’s Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Alabo Alfred, conveyed that Kekere and the newly apprehended individuals are under the police’s custody for additional inquiries.
This follows Kekere’s recent arrest after allegations surfaced accusing him of removing a woman’s kidney during a surgical procedure.
The Plateau Chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has voiced its disassociation from Kekere, insisting their investigations show he is not a certified practicing doctor.
Although the identities of the new suspects remain undisclosed, Alabo indicated that the State Police Commissioner is set to establish a committee of medical professionals to extensively examine the patient involved, and verify if her organ was indeed tampered with during the surgery conducted by Kekere.
“We have taken into custody two additional accused persons who seemingly conducted the said surgical procedure,” stated Alabo, further highlighting the involvement of State health authorities and the NMA to assist in the ongoing investigation.
According to the reports, Kekere was initially apprehended when he was accused by a local businessman, Alhaji Kamal, of removing his wife’s kidney during a surgical procedure in 2018. Kamal’s wife was operated on for alleged appendicitis at Kekere’s clinic, following a diagnosis made by Kekere himself.
