In a shocking revelation, the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has stated that the individual arrested for allegedly harvesting a patient’s kidney in Jos, Plateau State, is not a qualified medical doctor. This startling information has sent shockwaves throughout the medical community and beyond.
The accused, Noah Kekere, found himself at the center of a scandal when Kamal Busari, a businessman based in Jos, accused Dr. Kekere of performing a kidney removal surgery on his wife, Mrs. Kehinde Kamal, without his knowledge or consent.
Mrs. Kamal spoke to Daily Trust, recounting her ordeal and the discovery of her missing kidney, which came to light during her treatment at the Jos University Teaching Hospital, after she complained of severe abdominal pain.
Authorities swiftly launched an investigation into this disturbing incident. The police are working diligently to uncover the truth behind this shocking allegation.
Dr. Bapigaan William Audu, Chairman of the Plateau State chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association, provided further insight into the matter. In a telephone interview with Daily Trust Sunday, Dr. Audu disclosed that their records at the NMA secretariat do not list Noah Kekere as a medical doctor or a member of the association.
He stated, “What we have at our secretariat and the investigation we have carried out showed that he (Dr. Kekere) is not a doctor and not our member. We are going to come out with an informed decision on the matter. We are looking at different aspects of the matter as well as different facts available at the moment. So, I think things will be clearer by Monday or Tuesday.”
The revelation that the suspect is not a qualified medical practitioner raises serious questions about how such a horrifying incident could have occurred. The NMA’s upcoming decision and the ongoing police investigation will be crucial in shedding light on this disturbing case. Stay tuned for further updates on this developing story.
