    Did he remove it because it was bad, or with the intention of stealing the organ? what is this half baked news culling?

    What did he do with the organ, if he gave it to someone else, it should be removed back. That was how they killed my friend’s dad at National Hospital Abuja.
    He was pronounced dead, we all went home when grieved. he was taken to the mortuary, only for us to find out when we came to pick him that his kidneys are no longer there.
    According to a doctor friend, kidneys are only useful when they have life in them. That means his kidneys where removed before he gave up the ghost.

      There is a black market for kidneys and other organs so this evil doctor probably sold it
