Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state has been accused of collaborating with Kosovo, Turkey, Croatia and other countries to carry out human organs trafficking.

This allegation was made by the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), through the chairman of the Private and General Medical Practitioners in the state, Dr Philip Njemanze, Nigerian Pilot reports.

Njemanze, who spoke during a press conference after an emergency meeting of the association in Owerri, the state capital, 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.”


The aggrieved medical practitioner also alleged that Governor Okorocha’s recent trips 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 testament to the fact that the governor is party to organ trafficking business in the state.

When contacted, Sam Onwuemedo, the governor’s senior media adviser explained through a text message that the allegation “is an old story that is being handled by the DSS.”
