Kamal Busari, husband of the woman whose right kidney was allegedly harvested in Jos, Plateau State has disclosed how he was offered a bribe to close the case currently under investigation.
Kehinde Kamal’s kidney was allegedly harvested by Noah Kekere, who operates and manages Murma Hospital in Yanshanu community, Jos North Local Government Area of the state.
Busari told City & Crime, a Jos-based media organisation that, “I was offered a bribe of millions of naira at the detriment of my wife. I told them that I would not collect the money to close this case.”
The husband further disclosed that the Divisional Police Station where the case was earlier reported and had made an arrest of the suspect, was also offered a bribe to halt investigation.
“I have never seen a sincere police officer like the DPO of Nasarawa Gown division. He stood by the truth and rejected the money. He deserves to be commended. I believe that we still have good police officers,” he added.
Dr Kekere was arrested by the Nasarawa Gown police station upon receipt of a complaint by Busari who accused the practitioner of harvesting his wife’s kidney during an operation in 2018.
Until his arrest, Dr Kekere is said to have been conducting medical treatment and surgeries in Yanshanu communities for over two decades.
Meanwhile, Dr Kekere, following his arrest, runs mad and admitted subsequently in the psychiatry ward in JUTH.
The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in Jos, has distanced itself from the embattled doctor, noting that the accused is neither a medical doctor nor a member of the Nigeria Medical Association.
