The Plateau chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, has distanced itself from Noah Kekere’s actions in Jos.
The disclaimer is featured in a statement published jointly by Dr Bapigaan Audu and Dr Istifanus Bako, the association’s Chairman and Public Relations Officer, respectively.
The message was made accessible to journalists in Jos on Monday.
Mr Kekere, who claimed to be a doctor, was recently detained after being suspected of stealing a woman’s kidney during operation.
According to the organisation, its research into the accusation revealed that Kekere is not a medical professional.
“This is to inform the public and anyone else who may be interested that Mr Noah Kekere, who is currently under investigation for allegedly harvesting vital organs, is not a medical doctor.”
“The association’s thorough investigation revealed that he is a quack posing as a doctor.”
“Further information will be made public after further investigation initiated by the NMA and Nigerian Police Force,” the agency noted.
Mr Kekere was detained when a businessman named Alhaji Kamal accused him of removing one of his wife’s kidneys during surgery in 2018.
Mr Kamal stated that his wife, Kehinde, had been suffering from chronic stomach pain for the previous five years and was brought to Mr Kekere’s clinic in Jos North Local Government Area’s Nasarawa Gwom Community.
According to him, Mr Kekere performed a medical examination on his wife and determined that she had ruptured appendix and required immediate surgery.
