Health Minister Adewole Warns Nigerians Going On Medical Tourism To Be Careful Of Organ Harvesters

The Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, has urged Nigerians going on medical tourism to be careful and patronise only accredited institutions so as not to fall victims of organ harvesters.





Mr. Adewole, while speaking to journalists after the Federal Executive Meeting on Wednesday, alerted Nigerians on the rising cases of illegal harvesting of organs by cartels operating globally. It is our duty to alert Nigerians that this is ongoing, that they should be careful, should seek advice and they should patronise only accredited institution when going out of the country for medical tourism”, he said.


The ministry had earlier issued a similar warning to the Nigerian Medical Association, NMA.


The warning had come after the Egyptian authorities prosecuted 41 persons for illegal trafficking of human kidney. There have also been reported cases in Malaysia, India and China among others.
