Fake doctor arrested in Doma LGA, Nassarawa state
A suspected fake medical practitioner, Jonathan Sidi Ibrahim has been arrested by the Nassarawa State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
Ibrahim, who is 30 years old, was nabbed in Iwashi, Doguo of Sarkin Dawaki ward in Doma Local Government Area.
His arrest was made known to journalists by the commandant of the Corps, Bashir Lawal Kano.
According to Kano, the arrest was as a result of complaints received from the public.
He said the suspect had been operating an unregistered clinic called Abrason Destiny Clinic in Doma LGA. He added that preliminary investigations revealed that the suspect in 2015 transfused unscreened, untested and HIV infected blood to 6 years old Emmanuel Alaku who is now HIV positive “The command is of the view that if such persons are not made to face the full wrath of the law, there will be increased cases of untimely deaths, occasioned by fake medical treatment,” Bashir said.
He, therefore, asked residents to be vigilant and wary of fake medical practitioners adding that they should not hesitate to report them to security agencies for prompt action.
Kano also explained that “the corps in collaboration with the state Ministry of Health and the Nasarawa State chapter of the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria would ensure that the suspect who is in their custody is prosecuted before the appropriate court to answer the full charge against him.”
