Adamawa doctor arrested for removing patient’s kidney

Men of Adamawa State Police Command have arrested a medical doctor, Hassan Yakubu, for allegedly removing his patient’s kidney.
Yakubu, who works in a private clinic in Yola, was alleged to have removed the only kidney of a 23-year-old Isah Hamma who is now receiving medical attention at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) in the state capital.

The Command Public Relations Officer,
SP Othman Abubakar, who confirmed the arrest to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)Wednesday in Yola, said the doctor has been picked by the police.

According to Hammanseyo, the victim’s uncle, Yakubu, who treated Isa, at his Jimeta Clinic, for stomach complications, 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 Centre in Gombe.

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


“We have arrested him. He is now in our custody”, Abubakar said.

Abubakar also confirmed the arrest of a man from Zamfara who came to Yola with 40 children.

Abubakar said the man claimed that he came with the children with the consent of their parents to assist him in his firewood business.

Abubakar said investigation was on going.
