Update on Isah Hamman, man whose kidneys were removed by a doctor in Adamawa who thought they were tumors

Isah's kidneys were removed at a hospital in Jimeta, Adamawa state by a quack doctor who thought they were tumors. Isah has been at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital receiving medical attention. The state governor, Bindo Jibrilla, donated N5 million towards his treatment but plans to take him out of the country for a transplant hasn't been fulfilled.

Audu Bulama Bukarti who visited him at the hospital yesterday, gave an update. Please read below..


The photos below are pictures of Isah Hamman, a 23-year old whose both kidneys were negligently removed by a Doctor in Jimeta, Adamawa state in the course of an appendectomy (surgical removal of appendix) about 3 months ago. He removed the kidneys and gave them to the victim's parents to bury saying that is their son's sickness. This is case generated a lot of public outcry and at the end the Adamawa State Government promised to sponsor a transplant for him. The government has donated the sum of N5, 000, 000 out of which over a million naira has so far been spent on dialyses, feeding and other expenses. This young man is currently at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital where he is receiving medical attention. I paid him a visit yesterday at his relatives' invitation. As you can see below, I met him undergoing dialyses. He undergoes at 3 dialyses every week and each dialyses takes over 4 hours. From observation and the patient's testimony, the personnel at AKTH are very diligent and devoted to this patient care. However, the hospital lacks sufficient equipments to conduct a successful transplant. The victims kidneys were removed more than 3 months ago. He has no kidney at all. But he is waiting for transplant. Hospital sources told me that one of the things delaying transplant is that there is a test they cannot do in Nigeria whose result they are waiting for from abroad. Since my visit, I have not got the peace of mind that this young Nigerian would have a successful transplant here. My discussions with experts reveal that about N10 million will be sufficient for transplant abroad. I therefore call on the Federal Government, the Wife of the President, any state government or philanthropies to extend their helping hands as quickly as possible in order to fly this brother of ours to India, Egypt or any country for kidney transplant. This young man's case is unique and requires your unique magnanimity and generosity. After this stage, we will take up the matter against the doctor, his hospital, his employers and supervisors. Please share this to save your brother. Share until it gets to someone who can help. SHARE UNTIL WE SAVE THIS LIFE. Audu Bulama Bukarti 11/11/16

Sad story, but I disagree with you that kidney transplants can't be performed safely in Nigeria. There are a few units performing them on a fairly regular basis in the South West: The Urology unit at Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital (headed by Professors Badmus and Salako), Ile-Ife; Doctor Shonibare at St. Nicholas Hospital on Lagos Island, and a few others. You should contact those centres and get the transplant done safely at much cheaper rates.

It's unfortunate that skills advertisement isn't allowed in Nigeria, unlike other countries. As such, it's much easier to find the needed specialist in India, South Africa, or the West on Google than it is to find a fully-equipped unit doing the same thing in Nigeria.

I refused to believe this doctor went to medical school anywhere in the world. I met a lots of Nigerian Medical graduates and I have confidence in them. If his medical degree is truly from one of the school in nigeria, I hope the school be looked into, all the graduate in that school be called in for re-evaluation and the lecturers and consultant go thru re-education. There are mistakes that shouldn't happen and I wander if there where no nurses with the doctor during operation. I strongly believe it wasn't a real doctor

Audu Bulama fear God and report the right things not what you heard.Isa Hamman was born with congenital malfunctions and has been having pains in his abdomen since he was little.He took so many herbs and it made his kidneys to be horseshaped and not like human kidneys.When he came for the surgery he was in pains already and was bleeding internally,the doctor feels
