A 28-year-old Nigerian, identified as Chukwudi, from Imo State, had reportedly died while trying to sell his kidney in Malaysia to a patient needing a transplant. Nigerian business man based in Malaysia, disclosed that Chuwkwudi is not alone in this risky and dangerous business of selling internal organs for money, as many young Nigerians undertake this venture just to get rich quick.
The business man (name withheld) said: “I know many Nigerians will say it is none of my business how others make their money but I want to bring this to the notice of our country people how many of our young men die here in Malaysia in very disturbing circumstances.“I can tell of this young Igbo boy named Chukwudi, from Owerri, Imo state, who was paid the sum of N6 million by one rich man to donate his kidney for a transplant.
“The young man was brought in from Nigeria and I had the privilege of interacting with him and tried to discourage him from undertaking such a risky venture but he was adamant, telling me he had made up his mind already and nothing could stop him.
“I even asked him to join me in my little car washing business from which I have been able to build a house back home but Chukwudi did not want to struggle to make money, he wanted to undertake this venture just to get rich quick.“He wanted fast money and he ended up a dead man because the operation was not successful. He died in the process while the rich man had a successful kidney transplant.“I felt so bad because I kind of liked the boy who was a graduate and had a lot of life ahead of him.
“So, please I want to use this opportunity to warn our young people not to always be in a hurry to make fast money, especially at the expense of one’s life
,” the business man added.

A lack of education is killing our people. They fail to understand that one must go through certain medical tests and investigations before "donating" a kidney or any other body part. It is not simply a - "cut me open come take!" One must also have been on certain medication BEFORE and AFTER a transplant. This is silly, silly, silly.

The person receiving the kidney had no close association with the donor. The only thing they have is the money. They do not care about the plight of the donor.

Even after "donating" a kidney you need specialised AFTER CARE. Did he think he would have this care FREE in Nigeria. The 6 million naira (£5000) would have got him nowhere. This is sad and silly at the same time.

This is not poverty. This is GREED!

Those doctors deliberately killed the guy. I am one million percent sure of that. Because why was the operation successful for the recipient?  I am not supporting my fellow black brother who put his life at risk and ended up dying because of money to donate his kidney to help the dying man. What I know is so many people would have benefited from his riches. I am sure of that. I am a Ghanaian and he is a Nigerian. But I know Ghana and Nigeria have some kind of SPIRITUAL BOND that nobody can explain I don't know this guy anywhere but I just feel for him. In this world everything is a risk. Even eating from your own food prepared by yourself some people end up dying due to already poisoned foodstuff. I will like to use this opportunity to thank and thank that my brother who tried his best to persuade this young man from risking his life and also to give him a job which he refused. What I will say is things happen for a reason . May his soul rest in peace

6million is not even enough money to do such a thing for.
they probably took both his kidneys and left him to die, foolish guy.
