It could be recalled that Noah Kekere, was arrested in Jos, Plateau State, after a businessman, Alhaji Kamal, accused him of removing his wife’s kidney during surgery in 2018.

Kamal said his wife, Kehinde, had been suffering from chronic stomach pains for the past five years and was rushed to Kekere’s clinic located in the Nasarawa Gwom area of Jos North Local Government Area, where he diagnosed and concluded that she had ruptured appendicitis and needed urgent surgery.

Kamal further said ” The day the doctor conducted the operation, he started the operation from 12 noon till 8 pm, and for the past five years, my wife kept complaining of severe stomach pains. I continued to take her to the same hospital because I did not want to change the doctor that started her treatment,” he said.
