Police Arrest Fake Medical Doctor In Lagos

Lagos State Police Command has arrested a fake Medical Practitioner, Abdulrahman Mohammed, who has allegedly practised medicine for over four years at Idi-Araba area in Mushin.

The primary school dropout, the police said, owned a clinic where he administered intravenous injections to patients and also collected blood and urine samples for diagnosis.

The state Police Commissioner, Imohimi Edgal, said Mohammed had confessed that he usually bought the drugs from Idumota.

Edgal said: “Detectives from the Area D Command, Mushin, arrested one Abdulrahman Mohammed, a native of Ran, Borno State, for operating as a medical doctor whereas his education stopped at the primary school level.

Further investigation into his activities revealed that he had been administrating intravenous injections, conducting a medical test on his patients and taking urine and blood samples from his patients.”

However, according to Mohammed, the thermometer and other medical gadgets found in his shop were used by patients. He said: “I was a hawker. I was hawking drugs before I decided to open a pharmacy.

I did not finish my primary school and I was not taught to sell the drugs. My pharmacy was not licensed. I do not treat people. I do not collect blood or urine samples. I only sell the kits and people come to buy it.

For the thermometer, people used to come and check their temperature and other things by themselves. If someone comes and complained of a headache and fever, I give them Panadol or Boscopan and blood tonic.”
