Alleged organ harvesting: Enugu police caution ladies against moving with unknown male partners


The Enugu State Police Command has advised young ladies to be wary of going out with unknown male partners.

DAILY POST reports that the warning came amid a trending video where two young ladies were said to have been rescued from a hotel room after a failed attempt to harvest their organs.

However, in a statement made available to journalists on Sunday by the Police Public Relations Officer, Enugu State Command, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, he said the ladies, operating as commercial sex workers, were robbed by their supposed male customers who tied them in the room with rope.

According to the statement, “The Enugu State Police Command has intercepted a viral video showing two ladies alleged to have been rescued from a hotel room in Enugu, where they were tied up in an attempt to harvest their organs by two young men.

“The Command, therefore, wishes to state that, contrary to the misleading narrative on the incident, preliminary investigation revealed a case of demanding money with menaces and fraud, and not murder or human organs or parts harvesting as being peddled.

“Further revealed is that the ladies, operating as commercial sex workers, made out with the young men on July 3, 2024, in a hotel (names withheld) along Agbani Road, Enugu.

“They had another appointment the following day and met the suspects in the hotel where the incident occurred.

“At the hotel, the suspects beat and tied up the girls in the hotel’s room toilet after menacingly demanding and obtaining their phones and account details, including their Personal Identification Numbers (PINs). They surreptitiously found their way out of the hotel before the victims were rescued, as seen in the video.

“They further fraudulently withdrew a cumulative sum of one hundred and twenty thousand (N120,000.00) from the victims’ accounts.”

Ndukwe added that “a bag containing two (2) kitchen knives and sportswear the suspects left behind has been recovered, while an intelligence-guided investigation to fish out and bring the fleeing suspects to book is ongoing.

“Consequently, owners and managers of hotels have been advised to exercise the highest standards of security alertness and ensure that lodgers are properly screened, and their verifiable details obtained before being accommodated.

“Moreover, young ladies have been cautioned against going out with unknown persons, particularly males, under any guise to avoid falling prey to similar criminals and their activities.”
