On social media, a man in Lagos gridlock holding a sign that says “fresh kidney for sale” has generated controversy.
There was outrage on social networks yesterday after a man was spotted in Lagos traffic offering to have a fresh kidney for sale.
We don’t know if the kidney he planned to offer belongs to him or to anyone else.
Some social media users joked about it, saying, “This is where Nigeria has pushed him,” while others said, “E Don Red.”
”Na to go buy Cardboard paper. Wetin I wan sell Na my brain, it stopped working”, Another user wrote.
Another social media user wrote, ”I saw this guy yesterday in ikate Lekki traffic light”
Some, on the other hand, took it seriously, claiming that if the government does not apprehend the man and he cashes out, criminals may take advantage of the situation and begin harvesting organs from unwitting citizens.
”No matter how dis night seems funny, I don’t think d relevant authorities should let dis go, dis guy should be arrested before some criminal minded people turn this to lucrative business by harvesting people organs to sell.” another social media user wrote.
