Police Arrest Two Fake Doctors in Lagos...........

The quack doctor, Nwankwo Stephen: had delivered over 90 pregnancies....


Lagos

August 16, 2013


Two suspected quack medical doctors were on Friday paraded by the Lagos State Police Command at its headquarters in Ikeja, southwest Nigeria.

They were arrested for operating an unlicensed hospital at Omotoba Street, Unity Estate, Iba, Lagos.

The suspects, 39-year-old Gabriel Onyema Ihejiero, and Nwankwo Stephen, employed as doctor by Ihejiero, were arrested at a hospital named ‘Care Hospital’ located at 1B Omotoba Street, Unity Estate, Iba-Lagos.

According to the police, on 26 July, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Damian Okoro, who is the Area ‘E’ Commander, Festac Town, received a distress call that some fake doctors were operating in Iba area and they were arrested.
In his confessional statement, Stephen said: “The MD (Ihejiero) is my friend. He came to me for an advice, then I suggested to him that we should start a hospital business and he agreed.

“I only worked for two years in his hospital before I stopped. I was trained as an auxiliary nurse in Ondo State for two years.”
The police said their investigation revealed that the two suspects never attended any medical or nursing school and they have conducted over 80 deliveries for pregnant women in the hospital.

While corroborating the Police report that they have carried out series of surgical operations, Stephen said: “I have delivered over 90 pregnant women and they were all successful.”

In his own confession, Ihejiero, who claimed to be selling bond paper in Ghana before he began the hospital business, said: “I own the hospital located at Iba. Though I am not a medical doctor, I employed a doctor with two years medical experience.”

Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ngozi Braide, while speaking at the parade, advised the public not to patronise unlicensed hospitals and quack doctors.

I am sure a lot of pregnant women ran to them because their hospital fees were probably much cheaper than the legitimate ones.


Two fake doctors arrested - one thousand more to be apprehended.

Police Arrest Two Fake Doctors in Lagos...........

The quack doctor, Nwankwo Stephen: had delivered over 90 pregnancies....


Lagos

August 16, 2013


Two suspected quack medical doctors were on Friday paraded by the Lagos State Police Command at its headquarters in Ikeja, southwest Nigeria.

They were arrested for operating an unlicensed hospital at Omotoba Street, Unity Estate, Iba, Lagos.

The suspects, 39-year-old Gabriel Onyema Ihejiero, and Nwankwo Stephen, employed as doctor by Ihejiero, were arrested at a hospital named ‘Care Hospital’ located at 1B Omotoba Street, Unity Estate, Iba-Lagos.

According to the police, on 26 July, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Damian Okoro, who is the Area ‘E’ Commander, Festac Town, received a distress call that some fake doctors were operating in Iba area and they were arrested.
In his confessional statement, Stephen said: “The MD (Ihejiero) is my friend. He came to me for an advice, then I suggested to him that we should start a hospital business and he agreed.

“I only worked for two years in his hospital before I stopped. I was trained as an auxiliary nurse in Ondo State for two years.”
The police said their investigation revealed that the two suspects never attended any medical or nursing school and they have conducted over 80 deliveries for pregnant women in the hospital.

While corroborating the Police report that they have carried out series of surgical operations, Stephen said: “I have delivered over 90 pregnant women and they were all successful.”

In his own confession, Ihejiero, who claimed to be selling bond paper in Ghana before he began the hospital business, said: “I own the hospital located at Iba. Though I am not a medical doctor, I employed a doctor with two years medical experience.”

Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ngozi Braide, while speaking at the parade, advised the public not to patronise unlicensed hospitals and quack doctors.






POLICE in Lagos State have arrested a fake medical practitioner who claimed to have helped in the delivery of over 200 babies.
The owner of the hospital, a Ghana-based newspaper vendor, has also been arrested in connection with the unethical practices that took place at the hospital, which is situated at Unity Estate in Iba area of the state.

The duo were arrested after policemen from Area E Command, led by the Area Commander, Damman Okoro, swooped on the hospital following intelligence reports.

The Ghana-based vendor, Gabriel Onyema; and the fake medical doctor, Nwankwo Stephen, were on Friday paraded before newsmen by the image maker in charge of the state police command, Ngozi Bride.

Stephen was initially employed at Cares Hospital to understudy the doctor in charge but was allowed to take over, when the doctor left.

Stephen, while speaking with newsmen, admitted to being a fake medical doctor but claimed to have earlier been an apprentice at an unnamed hospital in Ogun State.

The fake medical doctor said, “Actually, I must be truthful to you, I am not a medical doctor, but I was employed as a medical doctor.
What really happened was that I told them (management) the truth that I was a trained auxiliary nurse, but, when the real doctor that was employed left the hospital, I started acting as the real medical doctor.

“My work speaks for me, because I have delivered (sic!) over 200 babies and only one died. 199 survived. Their mothers survived too. It was only a baby and a mother that died.”

On how the said baby and the mother died, the Anambra-State born suspect said, “It was not my fault; it was the fault of the doctor that was in charge. Before I took over, I was not happy, when he was trying to deliver a pregnant woman of her baby and the delivery lasted for about six hours.”

He said further, “She was bleeding profusely; blood littered everywhere and I pushed the doctor out of the labour room and inserted my hand into her womb and brought out the baby, so that the woman would not suffer. But all my efforts were fruitless as the woman and the baby died .That was the only woman who died in my years as the doctor in charge of the hospital.”

“Another (incident) that happened when I was there, which I was not happy with, was when a woman was transfused with an unscreened blood. I protested. Even though I was not qualified to be a doctor, I tried my best to operate according to the ethics of the (medical) profession.”

The owner of the hospital, Onyema, said that he sells newspapers in Ghana.

“I opened the hospital but (it is) not registered. I have started the registration process. I employed a genuine doctor but he left. This man (Stephen) that is talking like parrot started acting. I am a qualified spinal cord doctor, though I did not study it in the university.
The hospital was doing well, and this thrash that this man is talking, I was not there when it happened; I was in Ghana,” Onyema said.

Braide said the Area Commander in charge of Area E “through a tip-off started investigating the hospital and finally discovered that it was not registered, and that the doctors there were all fake.”

She said the suspects would be arraigned in court soon.---http://www.tribune.com.ng/news2013/index.php/en/news/item/19343-police-arrest-fake-medical-doctor-who-midwifed-200-babies.html
