Fake Doctor Nabbed for Running Illegal Hospital

The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a man for running an allegedly illegal clinic and maternity home while pretending to be a medical doctor.

The spokesman of the command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, told newsmen yesterday that Julius Afolabi had been carrying out surgical operations at the illegal clinic located in Abule-Iroko area of Ota, Ogun State.
Oyeyemi said nemesis caught up with the suspect after a female patient reported him to the police for failing to successfully carry out a fibroid operation she had paid for.
“Trouble started when the suspect collected the sum of N200,000 from one Funmi Adelaja to treat her of fibroid and he was unable to remove the fibroid”, the police spokesman said.
“This prompted the said Adelaja to report the case at Sango Police Station”.
Oyeyemi said when the local police officer detailed detectives to investigate Ms. Adelaja’s complaint, “it was discovered that the self-acclaimed doctor and Medical Director of Adeolu Afolabi Clinic and Maternity Home has never gone through any formal training that can qualify him to operate such outfit”.
He said the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, had ordered full investigation of the case with a view to charging the suspect to court at the end of the investigation.
