Idris Bala decided to do this because he could no longer afford to feed his family or pay his house rent.
Ex-teacher to sell his kidney in Kano
An ex-teacher in Kano has announced on radio that he is willing to sell his own kidney so he can be able to feed his family.
In an interview with Tribune, Bala, who lives in Naibawa quarters, said he used to ride a tricycle known as ‘Keke Napep’. According to him, the owner of the tricycle eventually collected it and sold it three months ago, also due to financial issues.
Since then, the ex primary school teacher has been trying to find a job.
‘Every morning, I trek to ‘Dangi Pharmacy’ to look for any type of job, but I go back home empty handed.
‘I am the shy type who cannot beg for money or go from one house to the other to ask for pittances.
He lamented that life has become so hard on him as he could no longer feed his family, pay rent or pay his children's school fees.
"I talk to myself that the only thing left for me is to offer one of my kidneys for sale.
“That was the reason I went to the state radio in Kano to market myself for any prospective buyer”, he declared.
