Noah Kekere, a Jos-based medical doctor who is being held by police on suspicion of organ harvesting by his patients, has apparently gone nuts.
Mr Kekere was detained last Wednesday by the Nasarawa Gwong Police Division in response to a complaint filed by one Kehinde Kamal, who accused the doctor of harvesting one of her kidneys during an operation in 2018.
DSP Alfred Alabo, the state police command’s spokesperson, confirmed Mr Kekere’s detention and said the doctor was being investigated at the police headquarters.
However, inside sources at the police headquarters told our correspondent that Mr Kekere had suddenly “gone insane.”
Mr Kekere, according to the source, had ripped his clothes and was acting wildly.
According to the source, Mr Kekere was admitted to the Jos University Teaching Hospital, JUTH, for medical examinations.
“He was in the cell, and it was later discovered that he began tearing his clothes and acting like a mentally unstable person in the cell.”
“As a result, the police rushed him to Jos University Teaching Hospital in handcuffs,” the source said.
Mr Kekere was admitted, according to another JUTH source.
“On arrival, he was just screaming, yelling and shouting. He was saying ‘they want to silence my daughter’,” he added.
According to the source, armed mobile police officers were stationed at the hospital’s psychiatric ward.
Many victims came out after Mr Kekere’s arrest to tell their ordeals at the hands of the doctor.
According to sources, at least four people have verified living with one kidney after having medical treatments at Mr Kekere’s Murna Hospital in Nassarawa Gwong, Plateau State’s capital.
An elderly man who requested anonymity stated, “I was scanned here in Jos yesterday, and it has been confirmed that one of my kidneys was removed.”
