MDCN declares doctor guilty of cutting off patient’s kidneys

The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) has declared Dr. Yakubu Hassan Koji, guilty of all the 12 charges preferred against him, TheNation reports.

Koji was arraigned for allegedly surgically cutting off the kidneys of one Isa Hamma, now deceased, without informing the patient of the nature of the operation and risks involved.

The Chairman of the tribunal sitting of MDCN, Prof Abba Hassan, declared him guilty of gross negligence and professional misconduct and struck his name out of the register of MDCN.

Dr. Koji – who practiced from 2012 (housemanship) to 2016- had performed an operation on Hamma without informing him of the risks involved; in the process he ‘mistakenly’ cut off his kidneys.
