WONDERS, they say, shall never end, as two teenagers left Lagos for Abeokuta in Ogun State to sell their organs for N200,000 without the consent of their parents.
Vanguard reliably gathered that the two teenagers, 17-year-old Precious Ikechukwu, daughter of the Bishop and Founder of Living Word Anointed Gospel Mission, located at Iyana-Ipaja in Lagos, Ikechukwu Umeayo and her father’s Secretary, 19-year-old, Theresa Obam, allegedly connived with a member of the church, Mrs Adeleke Blessing, who took them to a medical doctor at Redwood Specialist Hospital, Abeokuta, where their organs were sold for N100,000 each, two months ago.
It was gathered that Mrs Adeleke was staying with her mother-in-law in the compound where the church is situated and often attends the church’s vigil.
The secret they concealed was blown open on September 12, 2022, when Precious, the Bishop’s daughter, started vomiting. She was taken to hospital by her father, Ikechukwu Umeayo, who thought it was typhoid or malaria.
The doctor requested for medical test, which later revealed that her anus and private part were damaged.
It was gathered that the sick girl disclosed to her father that a female member of his church, Mrs Adeleke, trafficked her and Theresa to Abeokuta, where their organs were sold to a medical doctor.
The teenagers further alleged that Mrs Adeleke convinced them to carry out the illegal act because her father is not paying them enough money and that she will take them to where they will be handsomely paid N100,000.
They also alleged that Mrs Adeleke warned them not to tell their parents, saying that if they did, she will kill them.
