Reps probe illicit harvest, export of 7,200 male organs, other human parts to China

that sailed from Nigeria with 7,200 refrigerated male organs found in 36 boxes labelled as plantain at Shanghai port, known as Red Market in China, the House of Representatives yesterday resolved to probe the circumstances of the development.

Noting that the Chinese General Administration of Customs had alerted that an increasingly large number of armed groups in Africa use organs harvested in unsanitary conditions to finance their nefarious activities, the House underscored a need to curb the menace.

The resolution followed the consideration of a motion, titled “Need to Investigate the Illicit Trade in Human Organs”, co-moved by Rimamnde Shawulu Kwewum from Taraba State and Olajide Olatubosun from Oyo State at yesterday’s plenary.

The House stated that the perpetrators of the illicit trade generate between $600 million and $1.2 billion dollars profit annually, adding that the poor security situations encouraged them to use the third world countries as their major suppliers.

Presenting the motion, Kwewum said: “About two weeks ago, acting on the information provided by an anonymous source, Chinese authorities seized a cargo ship that sailed from Nigeria with 7,200 refrigerated penises which were found in 36 boxes labelled as plantain on the ship that harboured at the Shanghai port, called Red Market.

“The Chinese General Administration of Customs had alerted that an increasingly large number of armed groups in Africa use organs which are harvested in unsanitary conditions to finance their nefarious activities.
