The Nigerian Medical Association, Plateau State Chapter, has distanced itself from the activities of one Noah Kekere, a suspected fake doctor in Jos.

 

The association’s disclaimer is contained in a statement jointly issued by Dr. Bapigaan Audu and Dr. Istifanus Bako, its Chairman and Public Relations Officer.

 

The statement was made available to newsmen on Monday in Jos.

 

Kekere, who allegedly claimed to be a medical doctor, was recently arrested after he was accused of harvesting a woman’s kidney during surgery.

 

The group stated that its investigation of the allegation showed that Kekere is not a medical doctor.

“This is to inform the public and all concerned that Mr. Noah Kekere, who is currently being investigated over allegations of harvesting vital organs, is not a medical doctor.

 

”Diligent investigation by the association has revealed that he is a quack, pretending to be a doctor.

 

”Further information will be made public after further investigation initiated by the NMA and Nigerian Police Force,” the body added.

 

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Kekere was arrested by the police after a businessman, Alhaji Kamal, accused him of removing one of his wife’s kidneys during surgery in 2018.

 

Kamal said that his wife, Kehinde, had been suffering from chronic stomach pain for the past five years and was rushed to Kekere’s clinic located in the Nasarawa Gwom Community of the Jos North Local Government Area.
