The Plateau Chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association had previously dissociated itself from Noah Kekere, asserting that investigations had revealed he was not a qualified medical doctor.

The authorities have not disclosed the identity of the two arrested doctors. However, it has been revealed that they are suspected to have been involved in the surgery in question.

To further investigate and examine the woman who claimed that her vital organ was removed by Kekere during surgery, the Commissioner of Police in the state plans to establish a high-powered committee of medical experts.

This move aims to ascertain if the vital organ of the victim was tampered with.

“We have arrested two additional suspects who actually conducted the surgery on the said woman. We are in touch with the Ministry of Health in the state and the NMA to give us some professionals who will assist us in our investigation,” Alabo stated.
