A medical doctor identified as Noah Kekere, who owns a hospital in the Nassarawa Gwong community of Jos, has found himself in police custody after Alhaji Jamal, a Jos-based businessman, accused him of harvesting one of his wife’s kidneys.
According to the Leadership Newspaper, Alhaji Jamal recounted the alleged crime, stating, “About eight years ago, my wife was sick, so she was directed, and she visited a hospital owned by one Dr. Noah Kekere at Yanshanu, Nassarawa Gwong community of Jos North local government area. In the process of going to see my mom in the hospital, I got acquainted with the doctor.”
“When my wife fell sick in 2018, complaining of severe stomach pain, my mom encouraged us to take her there because my wife used to follow my mom to see the doctor when my mom was ill. As we got there, the doctor did a scan and said my wife had ruptured appendicitis and must be operated upon immediately, and he billed us N140,000.”
“When I called some people to ask about the high bill as I planned to take her to JUTH, they advised we should just go ahead and save her life.”
Further explaining the situation, he continued, “The doctor asked how much I had, and I said N80,000, apart from other charges for drugs. But after the operation, my wife was still complaining about the pain, and the man kept collecting money from me all these years. The day the doctor conducted the operation, he started the operation from 12 p.m. until 8 p.m., and for the past five years, my wife kept complaining of severe stomach pains. I continued to take her to the same hospital because I did not want to change the doctor that started the treatment. As she continued to have the pains, I decided to go to the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) a few days ago, where we discovered that one of my wife’s kidneys had been removed.”
This revelation prompted him to report the matter to the police, who subsequently arrested the doctor.
