The Kaduna State Government said, it has nabbed a suspected fake Medical Doctor, Saidu Ahmed Ya’u, who has been in the employment of the state for 11 years.

The State Ministry of Justice has charged Ya’u before the Chief Magistrate court for certificate forgery and impersonation.

In a statement issued by the Ministry of Justice, which was signed by the Attorney General of Kaduna State, Aisha Dikko, said that the accused has been remanded at the Kaduna Correctional Facility until March 16.

The statement further said that the First Information Report (FIR) indicated that Saidu has been working as a medical doctor for more than 11 years as a staff of the Ministry of Health.

According to the Attorney General, Governor Nasir El Rufai had ordered the Ministry of Health to investigate Saidu, following a petition alleging that the accused has been working with fake certificates.

The Ministry of Health set up a four-member committee to investigate and verify the certificates and institutions that Saidu claimed to have attended as well as verify his registration with the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria(MDCN).

The statement stated that the committee found out that the accused forged the certificates, which he presented to the government to enable him secure employment with Kaduna State Ministry of Health.
