Enugu Police Debunk Organ Harvesting Rumor, Reveal True Story Behind Viral Video

Enugu Police Debunk Organ Harvesting Rumor

The Enugu State Police Command has reacted to 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.

In a statement released, the spokesperson of the command, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, said the Command, therefore, wishes to state that, contrary to the misleading narrative on the incident, preliminary investigation showed 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 (₦120,000.00) from the victims’ accounts.’’
