Gov. Rochas Okorocha Accused of Trafficking Human Organs...See Shocking Details

Rochas Okorocha

Governor Okorocha of Imo State has been accused of involvement in an international illegal trade of human organs which has led to a protest by the leadership of the Nigerian Medical Practitioners.

In a startling allegation, the Nigerian Medical Association, NMA in Imo State have accused Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha of trafficking in human organs, allegedly with his collaborators in Kosovo, Turkey, Croatia and other countries, the Nigerian Pilot reports.

The Chairman, Private and General Medical Practitioners in the state, Dr Philip Njemanze, made the allegation during a press conference after an emergency meeting of the association in Owerri, the state capital.

Njemanze said, “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.”

Dr Njemanze alleged 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.

When Nigeria Pilot contacted Sam Onwuemedo, the Senior Media Adviser to Governor Okorocha, he explained through a text message that it “is an old story that is being handled by the DSS”.

The Association had ordered its members in all public hospitals in the state to commence a three-day warning strike in protest over the anti-life policies of the state governor, which led to alleged shooting of their colleague, Dr Bede Azudialo, during the peaceful protest rally.
