The police in Lagos State paraded an alleged quack doctor, Celestine Yolonfun, who was arrested in the Apapa area of the state.
The 32-year-old Yolonfun had been practising as a doctor since 2005 after he dropped out of a nursing school in the Benin Republic.
It was gathered that a pregnant woman, who was due for delivery, allegedly died in Yolonfun’s hospital, and her husband reported the doctor to the police at the SCIID. The husband later led the police to Yolonfun’s hospital – Be Well Hospital – on Liverpool Road, Apapa, and arrested him.
Yolonfun, who hails from Badagry, Lagos State, however said since he started practicing 11years ago,only two patients had died in his hospital.
The suspect confessed that he paid a colleague N70,000 to obtain fake certificates of the Nigerian Medical Association and the University of Ibadan, Oyo State.
