Busari Kamal, husband to the woman whose kidney was allegedly removed by Noah Kekere, a controversial doctor, has opened up on how he and the police Divisional Police Officer, DPO to whom the case was reported to rejected bribe running into millions of naira to close the case.
It had earlier been reported that the victim’s right kidney was harvested illegally at Murna Clinic and Maternity in Jos in 2018.
In an interview with Daily Trust, Kamal lauded the Divisional Police Officer, of Nasarawa Gown division, SP Timothy Bebissa, for standing by the truth and resisting all attempts to bribe him to downplay the case.
According to the husband, when the suspected harvester was arrested, all efforts made to bribe him and the DPO were unsuccessful, adding that he was asked to mention any amount he wanted for the kidney harvest case to be closed.
He said ” 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.”
Daily Trust reports that the arrest of the suspected harvester followed a complaint by the husband of the victim at the Nasarawa police station.
