Fake Doctor Arrested in Osun State Following Pregnant Woman’s Death

In a shocking development, the Osun State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has apprehended a man posing as a doctor, Oladiti Saheed, after the tragic demise of a pregnant woman in Ororuwo town, Boripe Local Government Area. The suspect, who has been falsely presenting himself as a medical practitioner, was involved in the delivery of the woman, which unfortunately led to her death.

The incident has raised alarms over the presence of quack doctors in the region and the dangers they pose to public health. The NSCDC, upon arresting the suspect, discovered that he had been operating without proper medical qualifications for over six years, putting countless lives at risk.

The State Commandant of the NSCDC, Dr. Akintayo Adaralewa, during a press briefing, revealed that the suspect’s highest educational attainment was a Secondary School Certificate. The suspect had been running a facility where he not only practiced medicine illegally but also trained others, charging a fee of N5,000 for this illicit education.

The deceased, who was close to her delivery date, had sought the services of the suspect due to an inability to continue antenatal care at her previous hospital. Following the delivery, she developed complications and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

The NSCDC has assured the public that the suspect will face the full weight of the law upon the conclusion of investigations. Meanwhile, the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has condemned the practice of quackery, emphasizing the need for vigilance among the public when seeking medical services.
