In Ogun State: Doctor arrested for carrying out illegal abortion

A fake doctor who allegedly performed an illegal abortion of a six

month pregnancy in Akute, Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State has

been arrested.

The crime was uncovered by a supervisory team of the State Ministry of

Health in collaboration with the Association of Nigeria Nurses and

Midwives (NANNM) while monitoring the level of compliance of the

re-validation and registration exercise of health facilities in the

State.

Chairman of NANNM, Roseline Solarin who disclosed this during an

interview added that the fake doctor was also discovered to have

organised a graduation ceremony for a fake nurse.

She, however reiterated the readiness of the professional body to lead

the fight against quackery in the health sector.

"This particular suspect conducted a graduation ceremony for a fake

nurse. Let me assure that the NANNM is now fully ready to cooperate

with the State Government in the fight against quackery in the State

health sector.

Any nurses or doctor found practicing without the prerequisite

certificate would be arrested and prosecuted" Solarin said.

While commending the state government for taking bold steps in

fighting quackery in the health sector, Solarin lamented that fake

doctors and nurses are gradually taking over the profession but warned

that anyone caught practicing without the prerequisite certificate

would be prosecuted and shown the way out of the system.

Reacting to the development, the

declared that government was ready to combat quackery in the health

sector to a standstill, expressing regret that a large number of

unsuspecting members of the public had been victims of this practice

Ipaye declared that the state would not be a comfort zone for quack

health personnel, warning that any health facility caught operating

with fake documents or not having the new approved signboards by the

state government would be dealt with in accordance with the laws of

the state.

"I want to urge members of the public to always patronize approved

health facilities that have signboards with the new colour and coded

number, which can offer them better and qualitative health care

services.

"The Governor has mandated officials of the Ministry to arrest and

prosecute anyone found operating facilities with fake documents" Ipaye

said.

To send the right signal in this direction, over 60 illegal health

facilities were shut down in different parts of the state during

similar monitoring exercises in 2016.
