Nigeria Doctor Arrested for Removing Patient’s Kidney

SHARE:


The Adamawa State Police Command has arrested a medical doctor, Hassan Yakubu, for his alleged role in the removal of the kidney of a 24-year-old male patient in his clinic.


The arrest of the medical doctor, the police said, was to help with their investigations into the alleged theft of the kidney of the 24-year-old male patient levelled against the doctor. Kidney theft?

The command’s Public Relations Officer, Othman Abubakar, confirmed the arrest of the doctor. He said the doctor was interrogated by officers of the command's criminal investigations department.

The incident, Punch reports, had now left the 24-year-old victim, Isa Hamma, in a life – threatening condition, due to alleged medical lapses on the part of the medical doctor who treated him for stomach complications.

Isa, whose kidney, according to his relative, Umaru Hammanseyo, was allegedly removed, owing to medical errors on the part of the doctor, had been placed on a weekly dialysis at a Medical Centre.

Hammanseyo, the victim’s uncle, said Yakubu, who treated Isa, at his Clinic, for stomach issues, ended up operating the victim on July 8 but allegedly removed his kidney in the process.

Three days after the operation, Umaru said Isa could not urinate.

The complications further degenerated with the face and legs of the victim becoming swollen which prompted the family to return to the accused doctor who later referred them to the Federal Medical.

Hammanseyo said it was at Gombe hospital that medical officials working with the Federal Medical Centre told them that Isa’s kidney had been “removed.”
