The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested the leader of a syndicate involved in the buying and selling of human parts in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

The leader of the syndicate identified as Ukaeje John Emeka was arrested by operatives of the Port Harcourt zonal office of the EFCC.

The commission revealed in a statement that Emeka, who goes by the aliases Dr. Phil Mark, Dr. Donald Phillip and Dr. Wesley David, is involved in buying and selling of human organs for trafficking to foreigners.

The anti graft agency stated that Emeka was arrested on April 16, 2021 at Rumukparali, Ozuoba, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, based on established intelligence on his suspicious fraudulent internet dealings.

“Preliminary investigations by the EFCC showed that the suspect is leading a syndicate of fraudsters falsely presenting themselves as medical doctors, with a human organ bank, particularly kidneys for sale and purchase.

“Victims of the syndicate include people with renal disease and even healthy people desirous of selling their organs in Nigeria; India; Pakistan; Indonesia and United Arab Emirate.

“Items recovered from the suspect include: one Nigerian passport; one Republic of Cote D’ivore passport, nine ATM cards; one black-coloured HP laptop; one gold-coloured Tecno L9 plus phone; one- gold coloured Samsung Galaxy J8 and one ash- coloured Lexus ES 330 salon car.

“The Commission is on the trail of other members of the syndicate within and outside Nigeria,” the statement said.
