Fake doctors have been arrested in Cross River State for performing surgeries in Ogoja LGA of the state.

This was disclosed at a news conference by Dr. David Ushie, the Special Adviser to Governor Ben Ayade on Health Matters and the Chairman of the Cross River State Task Force on Quackery and Related Violations in the Healthcare Delivery System, in Calabar on Monday.

He said the task force got information about the illegal activities of the fake doctors at the Aladim community in Ogoja LGA, stormed the community, and arrested the suspects.

Ushie said, “I received a tip-off concerning activities of some ‘wonder surgeons’ in Aladim community of Ogoja LGA.

“My team left Calabar by 12:30 am of September 8, 2022, to ensure the offenders did not escape as they usually did.

“We immediately contacted the Chairman of Council, Hon Emmanuel Ishabor and the DPO of Ogoja Area Command, Supol Horsfall, who both confirmed the incident.”

He said the task force was taken to the Health Center at Aladim, where the crime was allegedly committed.

“After a full day interviews and facility assessment, we made the following discoveries: There were 10 patients on admission. Nine of the ten patients had eleven ‘surgeries’,

“Amongst the nine, three patients had four ‘surgeries’ for ‘hernia’. The majority of the seven had ‘surgeries’ for ‘appendectomies’. One patient had two surgeries’ for ‘appendix’ and ‘hernia’.”

He added, “At least five of the 11 surgeries were clearly recognisable as superficial skin cuts giving patients the false sense that they had surgery (-ies).

“At least six persons conspired in these fake surgeries, and they carried out ‘surgical operations’ on all nine.”

He added that one of the suspects carried out an ultrasound scan and works with Life First. Life First is located in Okuku, Yala LGA and is owned by Dr Augustine Adugba, a medical practitioner.

He said Dr Augustine Adugba and others allegedly facilitated the activities after the April 2022 meeting at Health Centre Aladim where the community allegedly agreed to carry out the fake surgeries.

The suspects are now in police custody after some went underground and trailed.

He said that the patients treated by the quack doctors had been moved to the Ogoja General Hospital for better treatment.

Ushie also stated that in September 2020 and before the recent incident, the task force had responded to 22 reports, arrested seven violators, and closed down 13 healthcare facilities on account of various violations of the regulatory laws.

I've been a freelance web developer and blogger for a while now and have a passion for both. Like most men, I'm a football lover; I prefer playing to watching matches.Personally, I believe with dedication there's no limit to what we can achieve. Yes, we all have the power and ability to do that.

Metro News Happening In Nigeria Today

The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has ordered the Labour Party and its supporters not to converge at the Lekki toll gate for its #Obidatti23 Forward Ever Rally billed to hold on the 1st of October, 2020.

Justice Daniel Osiagor made these orders today while ruling on a motion for injunction brought by 10 plaintiffs, who are asking the court to, among others, restrain the LP, its presidential candidate Peter Obi, his vice Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, one Julius Abure and their loyalists from holding the rally.

The court also held that the while the rally cannot stop at the Lekki toll gate, it can pass through the venue to access Falomo Bridge and other venues at which the rally plans to meet.

A preliminary objection filed by the defendants seeking to stop the court from hearing the motion on the grounds that it lacked jurisdiction could however not been entertained as all parties to the suit had not been served.

The court adjourned hearing of the substantive suit to Nov 4th.

In the suit, 10 plaintiffs through their Romeo Ese Michael, Esq. are asking the court to, among others, restrain the LP, its presidential candidate Peter Obi, his vice Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, one Julius Abure and their loyalists from holding the rally, until the hearing and determination of their Motion-On-Notice of September 12, 2022.

The plaintiffs are Adedotun Ajulo Esq., Salamatu Suleiman Lewi Esq., Hakeem Ijaduola, Esq., Ogunbona Akinpelu Esq., Owolabi K. Oluwasegun, Esq., Mogbojuri Kayode Esq., Wuyep Mantim Nadom Esq., Dimimu Mabel, Esq., Kolawole Salami, Esq. and Mr. Wale Abe Lawrence.

In the substantive suit, the plaintiffs are arguing among other things that a repeat or celebration of the “infamous” EndSARS protest of 2020 under the political guise of “#Obidatti23 Forward Ever Rally” will cause a breakdown of peace and will result in post-traumatic stress disorder for them and the public.
