The medical doctor, Noah Kekere, who was alleged to have harvested a woman’s kidney in a private hospital in Jos, the Plateau State capital has reportedly gone berserk while in the police cell at the state police command on Saturday evening.
LEADERSHIP reports that Kekere was arrested on Wednesday following a report to the Nasarawa Gwon Police Division for alleged removal of the right kidney of Mrs Kehinde Kamal during an operation in 2018.
It was gathered that Kekere had prior to his arrest been carrying out medical treatment including surgery for more than two decades in his Murna Clinic and Maternity, located in Yanshanu Community of Jos North local government area of the state.
The state police command had earlier confirmed the arrest of the suspected kidney harvester.
