Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) star Leo Da Silva has called the attention of Nigerians to what might be behind the high rate of missing persons in the country.
Hardly a day goes by on social media without seeing at least two different photos of individuals whose family members are searching for online.
Sometimes, these pictures circulate the internet for months without any positive news of their return.
A Twitter user identified as LaRevulva brought up the topic of how the number of missing persons in the country keeps increasing every day.
LaRevulva reported that there are over 25,000 missing persons in the country presently - people who left their loved ones with no trace.
Leo supported his claims by mentioning how one of his close friends nearly became a victim.
In Leo’s statement:
"There is an organ harvesting ring thriving in Nigeria. Someone close to me has fallen victim, but God saved him. This is why we need to start securing ourselves in Nigeria. Security agencies can’t."

Netizens react to BBNaija Leo’s alarm
"King of Boys had revealed this before and now Shanty town has also emphasized it, it is better we start creating awareness of this."
"The thing that happened with Uduak the guy that murdered a jobseeker, that’s just a small part of a big organ harvesting syndicate, but he took the fall and it was wrapped up. In saner climes the media wouldn’t have access to the story, intelligence agencies would have used Uduak to pull out the big guys, but the big guys might still go unpunished cos of how this country is."
"Crazy thing is Rivers is where my friend fell victim." toiyoabasi1: "Oh my God. Some people japa is not because of money. They just want safety and sanity. Basic human rights protection."
"Missing persons and the so called organ harvesting has been going on for years it’s even worse during election and festive periods. May God continue to protect us from."
"I was talking to a couple of people who didn't understand the money ritual thing and tried explaining to them that it was nothing more than organ harvesting, only just making it look like rituals. A multi-billion dollar ring that most people are oblivious to."
