Medical doctor prosecuted for cutting off patient’s kidney

The medical doctor, identified as Koji, has been found guilty by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) for having surgically cut off the kidneys of Isa Hamma (now deceased) without informing him of the nature of the operation.

Striking Koji’s name from the MDCN register, Prof. Abba Hassan, chairman of the MCDN Tribunal, found him guilty of gross negligence and professional misconduct.

Dr. Koji, who was in practice from 2012 to 2016, performed an operation on Hamma without first informing him of the risks involved  prior to the operation.

During the surgery, Dr. Koji mistakenly cut off Hassan’s kidneys.
