Nigerian Man Dies in Malaysia After Selling his Kidney for N6 Million



Man in Hospital

A 28-year-old Nigerian man named Chukwudi, has died after selling his kidney for N6 million in Malaysia.

An individual said to be a business man told Pulse the news.

The unnamed source said:

“I know many Nigerians will say it is none of my business how others make their money but I want to bring this to the notice of our country people how many of our young men die here in Malaysia in very disturbing circumstances.

I can tell of this young Igbo boy named Chukwudi, from Owerri, (Imo State) who was paid the sum of N6 million by one rich man to donate his kidney for a transplant.

The young man was brought in from Nigeria and I had the privilege of interacting with him and tried to dissuade from undertaking such a risky venture but he was adamant, telling me he had made up his mind already and nothing could stop him.

I even offered he join me in my little car washing business from which I have been able to build a house back home but Chukwudi did not want to struggle to make money.

He wanted fast money and he ended up a dead man because the operation was not successful. he died in the process while the rich man had a successful kidney transplant.

I felt so bad because I kind of liked the boy who was graduate and had a lot of life ahead of him.

I want to use this opportunity to warn our young people not to always be in a hurry to make fast money.”

      @ Mystique, why throw in the Igbo angle? would it matter if the guys you mentioned were Igbirra, Esan Yoruba or Hausa. Why all these tribalistic postulations?

      thanks for pointing it out. pretty sure mystique is of yoruba tribe because they are the ones very fast to throw the igbo tribe under the bus, pointing fingers at every slightest thing forgetting that the rest of the 4 fingers still points back at them. drop your comment and stop being tribalistic about it, treat everyone as an individual.

      Unfortunately, these are the kind of guys naija babes die for, once they start flaunting the wealth in the society, and our value system has been eroded already….so long as u have money, no matter how u get the money, society gives u more respect and voice

      Are the Yoruba boys that do yahoo-yahoo, money rituals any better? We Yorubas should stop all these igbo-hating and look inwards. We are fast losing it. We are even losing it in education- an area where we used to have the clear edge. For some 5 straight years now, Eastern Nigeria has been churning out better results in WAEC/NECO. Our politics have lost it, no thanks to the man with the two big eyes and our gullible youths. Instead of aligning with the rest of the South to push for regionalism/fiscal federalism, we fell for a very glaring but well organized ‘fake change’ propaganda. Please let’s look less at the Igbos who with all their own issues are doing well for themselves without much help from the Nigerian union. Let’s take a long, hard look at ourselves and tell ourselves some hard-truths. Yoruba ronu!

      The danger of a single story. No one has any facts, yet we are here judging. What if the money was to pay for expensive life-saving surgery for a family member? Or just a desire to save the life of someone he knows with the gift of one of his kidneys? Because you don’t understand it no mean say no be condition make crayfish bend.

      @ Mystigue lol I’m try not to bring tribes into nothing but funny enough, this is my first time saying it but mind y’all I’m not one of the ethnic groups.. Even before I read this article, something told me only an Ibo person will do such. Yes, everyone is hungry to be wealthy but theirs is on cloud 9!!! Now I guess the money is heading back to the government.. May his soul rest in peace. Y’all can attack me all U want but that’s my 2cent.. I tell my ibo friends all the time they need to calm their asses down cuz this mullah ain’t going to heaven or hell with US.

    NAPTIP has been mandated to take on the evil of Organ harvesting (though, in this case it was purely consensual). There are agents who go scouting for these individuals, they should be rounded up and prosecuted.

    Lol.. You guys are just lazy to actually write true stories. First, a young man was brought in from Nigeria to sell his kidney?? Lmfao. Very funny. Lol. And the story teller says he’s into a car washing business?? Lmao again. For which country? Malaysia? Car wash for where? Lol. The story is not only false, it’s baseless!!

    This is my first time commenting on any blog but you just have to carrying fake stories about Nigerians in Malaysia selling kidneys for money. Smh

    Rich man has successfully harvested his kidneys, maybe even his heart, liver, eyes who knows.

  10. ok

    August 26, 2015 at 2:50 pm

    This is the biggest lie from earth, First of all, selling kidney is mostly done in Thailand and hardly in Malaysia, also the guy that said he wash cars is a big lie, you are not permitted to work in Malaysia at all, unless with work permit which is like going to hell and coming back because Africans are hated so much there, so they feel you are useless to them, guy you are doing yahoo yahoo or cocaine business that is it, working in Malaysia even if you are married to their locals is the hardest thing in life, they hate blacks with every fibre of their being, racism is there in every sector, even among themselves, They hate the Indians like hell, not to talk about their Chinese, not to talk you that is black and Nigeria for that matter abeg park well this story is false

    As written in 1 timothy 6:

    6But godliness with contentment is great gain.
    7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
    8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
    9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
    10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

    The Bible is Never wrong…

    See all of them preaching contentment on Arik staff with drugs and this boy selling his kidney. No be because of you dem dey do all these?

    If d guy no get range like dat arik staff, you wont look their side
    if they guy no sell his kidney get 6m on d spot and be able to take you anywhere and buy you ferrari, will you look at him?

    All your posts, comments on BN shows all you people want is comfort, financial security, money, more money, some more money and money again.

    If you are a guy and you try to satisfy a girl for whatever reason and you engage in any silly act, you are OYO o. the girl go leave you run away when you are caught sef. All d babes wey dey chop from dat arik guy now go disappear.

    Life for you
