How 17-year-Old Boy’s Kidney Was Harvested, Sold In Abuja – Police

A police officer, Inspector Godwin Ato, has narrated how a kidney of 17-year-old boy, who was lured to Abuja from Benue State, was harvested in the Federal Capital Territory.

Ato told a Makurdi Chief Magistrate Court on Thursday that one Alexander Swati reported the case at Aliade Police Station in Benue on Aug. 27

Speaking during arraignment of one Aondoaseer Agbadu (20) before the court over alleged criminal conspiracy and the harvesting of the kidney of the 17-year-old boy, the prosecuting officer said Agbadu criminally conspired with others still at large in April, deceived and took Swati’s 17-year-old son to Abuja where he was operated upon and one of his kidneys harvested.

The kidney, he added, was sold to people still at large just as the entire operation was conducted without the consent of the father or of the victim.


He said the crime contravened the Trafficking in Persons (Prohibition) Enforcement and Administration Act (2015).

Ato also told the court that police investigation was still on-going and requested for additional time to prosecute the accused thoroughly.

The court did not take Agbadu’s plea for want of jurisdiction.

Presiding Magistrate Taribo Atta directed that the case file be sent to the Director of Public Prosecution for advice and remanded Agbadu at the Federal Maximum Correctional Centre, Makurdi.

Atta thereafter adjourned the case to Oct. 23 for mention
