LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Busari Kamal, husband to the woman whose kidney was reportedly removed by Noah Kekere, a doctor known for his controversial practices, revealed that he was offered millions of naira to settle the matter quietly.
Daily Trust had early reported that the victim’s right kidney was harvested illegally at Murna Clinic and Maternity, Jos, in 2018.
In an interview with Daily Trust, Kamal stated that when the suspected harvester was arrested, all efforts made to bribe him and the DPO of Nasarawa Gown division, SP Timothy Bebissa, were unsuccessful, adding that he was asked to mention any amount for the case to be closed.
Kamal lauded the the Divisional Police Officer, of Nasarawa Gown division, SP Timothy Bebissa, for standing by the truth and resisting all attempts to bribe him to down play the case.
“I have never seen a sincere Police officer like the DPO of Nasarawa Gown division. He stood by the truth and rejected money. He deserves to be commended. I was also offered bribe of millions of naira at the detriment of my wife. I told them that I will not collect the money to close this case. I believe that we still have good Police officers,” he said.
The suspect’s arrest followed a complaint by the husband of the victim at the Nasarawa Police station.
Dr. Kekere who is currently exhibiting mental illness at the psychiatric unit of Jos University Teaching Hospital had prior his arrest, been carrying out medical treatment, including surgery for over two decades.
