LAGOS: Fake Doctor Apprehends By Police With Forged OAU Certificate, Over 200 Patients Fall Victim – Details.

The Operatives of Lagos State Police Command have apprehended a fake medical doctor fully practising in the Ikorodu area of the state, with a forged certificate from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State.

According to a video that goes viral on social media on Tuesday, the police officers affirmed that they discovered about 200 patient cards with the fake medical practitioner, Tayo Shakirudeeen, an indigene of Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Shakirudeen confessed that he had treated malaria, typhoid, infections and performed operations on children suffering from appendix, after he learnt it where he worked as a Nursing Assistant at The Jones Hospital, Ojokoro along Ikorodu Road.

While interrogating him on number of years he had been treating patients with a fake certificate, he said three years claiming that it was his first time performing a proper surgery.

Investigation also revealed that it was a patient he treated that came with the policemen to arrest him, as he regretted his actions.

Shakirudden confessed, “I performed vital signs and abdominal scans. Then after confirmation, you do PCV (packed cell volume) and then you prepare the patient for the surgery. You clean the stomach with antiseptic Dettol with water. So after that, you give some anesthesia injection before starting the surgery,”

“I used a surgical blade to dissect the stomach, it’s appendix after opening the stomach then you cut the appendix after cutting the stomach then you suction the appendix then you suction the flesh fat and the skin then you pack it with gauze and apply plaster.”

Further interrogation disclosed that Shakirudden only holds SSCE from Majidun Grammar School, as he said when he was arrested.

“After performing the surgery, the patient has been discharged home. So after like three months, the patient came with the police to arrest me.” Shakirudden lamented.

According to him, there were no complications after treating the patient so he did not know the reason why the patent came back with the police.

“I charged one hundred fifty thousand, and I have six workers. My hospital is located in Ikorodu. It’s a new site but somewhere close to Elepe Estate. I regret every bit of my action so I would never advise anyone or if there’s anyone that is still hiding somewhere and doing such a thing they should desist from it,” he added.

Shakirudeen’s hospital is Skyline Medical Centre and noted that he is a married man with three children

While speaking about the certificate the police found with him, he said, “It’s a forged certificate from Obafemi Awolowo MBBS, Medicine, and Surgery. Nobody taught me, but I used to help my boss when he was performing the surgery.”
