The Togolese international Emmanuel Adebayor recently made a media outing during which he denounced and condemned human organ trafficking, which is a growing social plague between Benin and Togo. For the former gunners striker, the authorities of both countries must unite and fight this phenomenon because it is “disgusting for an individual to turn the bodies of others into pieces for sale” .
Emmanuel Adebayor also invited his compatriots and Africans in general to “vigilance and collaboration with the authorities by denouncing any suspicious person in the neighborhoods” .
” I would like to denounce the current situation in Lomé with the trafficking of living / dead human organs. Indeed this traffic is supported by some amateurs of sacrifices. Over the past few days, horrific acts have multiplied, especially in Togo. I stress that this situation in Togo is not an isolated case. Several other countries of the continent have also been affected. Despite the flow of traffickers between Togo and Benin, I do not want in any case that it divides our two countries. It is rather the moment to join together as neighbors and friends to collectively fight the phenomenon.
I find it very disgusting that an individual transforms the body of others into pieces for sale. I call all my Togolese compatriots and all my African brothers / sisters to vigilance and collaboration with the authorities by denouncing any suspicious person in the neighborhoods. Pray for our country Togo and all countries affected by this very worrying traffic. Let’s say NO to human organ trafficking. “ He said.
