A fake Doctor identified as Mudassir Mohammaed Idris, has been arrested for the killing of a three-year-old girl, Hauwa, while trying to carry out a blood transfusion on her.
Bittertruth Media reports that the arrest was effected by the Nasarawa State Command of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC).
The suspected fake medical doctor who owns an unregistered chemist has been reportedly practicing medicine for over two years without a medical certificate in Lafia, Nasarawa State.
Confirming the arrest, the NSCDC Commandant, Mahmoud Gidado Fari, who paraded the suspect in Lafia on Monday, said he was arrested following complaints from the father of late Hauwa.
Bittertruth Media gathered that in the process of the blood transfusion, the girl developed complications and was rushed to Dalhatu Araf Specielist Hospital, (DASH), Lafia where she died.
The suspect claims to have been a student of the College of Health Technology, Gboko in Benue State and that he has been treating people successfully and had not experienced any complicated case like that of the deceased.
He however pleaded for forgiveness from the state government and NSCDC.
