THE police in Bauchi have arrested a medical doctor for allegedly removing the two kidneys of a 23-year-old Fulani patient, Abubakar Buba, in a private hospital in Bauchi, Bauchi State, recently, leaving the victim in a critical condition.

The doctor, it was gathered, impersonated one Dr Sani, who owns Aminchi Clinic, located at Yakubu Wanka area of the Bauchi metropolis, to operate on Buba, who was brought to the clinic by his parents when he fell ill.

The patient, it was learnt, was diagnosed of having either malaria or typhod fever when he was brought to the clinic on the advice of those his parents contacted on arrival in Bauchi from Bununu in Tafawa Balewa Local Government Area of the state.

Buba, it was gathered, had refused to be operated on when he was first wheeled to the ‘theatre’ where the operation was performed and was brought out, only to be taken there the second time and prepared for the operation to be carried out.

His condition worsened after the doctor allegedly performed the operation and was referred to the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital in Kano.

His father, Mallam Buba, informed that the doctor did not asked for any payment before carrying out the operation that turned out to be deadly, saying that, “they only asked me for N10,000, which they said was for drugs. After the operation, may be they understood that my son would not survive and I started raising the alarm, they now asked us to go to Kano. They refused to send us to Bauchi.

“All my money finished in Kano on his treatment. From Kano, when I could not shoulder the expenses for the treatment, the hospital wrote to the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital here in Bauchi to start the treatment.”
