Two teenage girls are currently dying after selling their organs for N100,000 each to a doctor at Redwood Specialist Hospital, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The girls involved are a 17-year-old Precious Ikechukwu, daughter of Bishop Ikechukwu Umeayo, the founder of Living Word Anointed Gospel Mission, based in Iyana-Ipaja in Lagos, and her father’s 19-year-old secretary, Theresa Obam.
Precious and Theresa are said to have conspired with a member of the church, Mrs. Blessing Adeleke, who often attends the church’s prayer vigils.

Vanguard learned that Mrs. Adeleke, who was staying with her mother-in-law on the grounds of Bishop Umeayo’s church, had taken the girls to a doctor Durodola’s at the aforementioned hospital in Ogun state capital.
The whole saga became known on September 12, 2022, when Precious started vomiting. Her father took her to a hospital thinking her illness would be typhoid or malaria.
In an attempt to treat her, the doctor requested a medical test, which later revealed that Precious’s anus and genitals were damaged.
It was believed that the sick girl told her father that a female member of his church, Mrs. Adeleke, trafficked her and Theresa to Abeokuta, where their organs were sold to a doctor – Dr. Durodola.
The teens further revealed that Ms. Adeleke convinced them to carry out the illegal act as her father is not paying them enough money and she would take them to where they will be paid lavishly N100,000.
Another revelation they put out was that Mrs. Adeleke warned them not to tell their parents, saying she would kill them if they did.
How the transplant was performed
The victims further said that Ms. Adeleke, also known as Mummy K, smuggled them to the hospital in Abeokuta, Ogun State without their parents’ consent and colluded with Dr. Durodola who injected them with some drugs.
They claimed they were forcibly taken to a PDF hospital in Surulere, Lagos, where they were also forced.
During the process, their ovaries/eggs/organs were illegally harvested by the doctor without their consent, causing severe pain and bleeding.
Based on the revelations, the ladies were transferred to another hospital in Surulere, Lagos, where they were referred to a medical laboratory for tests and scans.
The result revealed that their liver, uterus, urinary bladder, kidney, spleen and gallbladder were damaged due to their ovaries/eggs, approximately (46 ovaries) harvested at the hospital in Abeokuta.
They are not organ harvesters – police
Lagos State Police spokesman David Hundeyin said: “They were not organ harvests, the surgery was performed by a professional doctor and the process was legal.
“All documents were signed and the girls stated in the document that they were over 18 years old.”
