The Nigerian Medical Association, NMA in Imo State, on Thursday accused Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha of trafficking in human organs.
The Chairman, Private and General Medical Practitioners in the state, Dr Philip Njemanze, made the accusation during a press conference; NIGERIAN PILOT reports.
”For the first time in human history, a government has declared itself an organ trafficking cartel. Imo state government is using the state health facilities to facilitate organ trafficking network.
”Foreign collaborators of the state government from Turkey, Kosovo, Croatia and others are already here in Imo to perfect creation of the network. It is an international network with Rochas as its local head. A former prime minister of Kosovo is the head of organ trafficking in Europe and he is a friend of Okorocha,” he said.
The NMA added that the recent trips of governor Okorocha to Turkey, Kosovo, Croatia and other Latin American and Asian countries as well as the building of the new 27 general hospitals in the state, are steps by the governor to consummate the organ trafficking business in the state.
