Govt. Hospital denies claim staff stole patient’s kidney

The Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Keffi, Nasarawa State has denied ‘ridiculous allegations’ that its medical staff stole one of the kidneys of a patient.

A claim made by one Mohammed Barau that one of his kidneys was removed during an operation in FMC, Keffi, had gone viral.


But the Medical Director of the centre, Dr Giyan Joshua-Ndom,  dismissed the claim in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday.

He said, “Having investigated the issue thoroughly, I am in a position to give you adequate information that guided us aright that the said patient came here in 2010, critically ill and the doctors battled to save his life.

“They removed pussy tumour on the left side of his abdomen that was suspected to be cancer but tests failed to confirm that. He was nursed and discharged about a month.

“He returned six years later for treatment of another ailment, at which time his left kidney was discovered to be missing as adequate analysis and information at this stage was the needful as one of the kidney drivers of patient satisfaction which he did not get.

“Without proper education, he jumped in to the conclusion that his kidney has been stolen. Histopathology report would have helped identify what was removed but the report showed that it was rotten beyond reasonable analysis.”
