A suspected fake medical doctor allegedly responsible for the death of a 3-year-old girl has been arrested by operatives of the Nasarawa State Command of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC).
The suspected fake doctor identified as Mudassir Mohammed Idris who has reportedly been on the job for 2 years was found out after a 3-year-old girl, Hauwa died after a blood transfusion at his facility.
NSCDC Commandant Mahmoud Gidado Fari told news men that the suspect was arrested following a complaint the late girl’s father made.
“We have arrested the fake medical doctor. We are charging him to court for culpable homicide because he illegally administered blood on an innocent girl of three years old which resulted in her sudden death.”
Mudassir said he was a student of the College of Health Technology, Gboko in Benue State and pleaded for forgiveness as he has successfully treated other patients before Hauwa’s case.
He also allegedly ran an unregistered drug store and has been practicing medicine for over two years without a medical certificate.
