Fake Doctor Arrested For Aborting 2nd Trimester Pregnancy

Oyo State Police Command has arrested 26 year old Akilapa Johnson for posing as a doctor and   carrying out a life threatening abortion on a 23 year old woman in Ibadan.

Johnson was said to have performed an abortion on Barakat who was five months pregnant without any formal training as a medical doctor.

The State Commissioner of Police, Leye Oyebade said, “The abortion was carried out in the suspect’s one apartment which served as clinic located in a slum at the Sasa Area of Ibadan. Shortly after the abortion, the victim developed serious complications which resulted in her being admitted at the UCH where she is presently lying ill.”

“Investigation revealed that the fake doctor, a Secondary School Leaving Certificate holder, was only trained as a paramedic nurse and a first aid giver. Exhibits recovered from the suspects are two pieces of stethoscopes, two pieces of Plaster of Paris bandages, four pairs of hand gloves, injection and syringe.”

The suspect admitted to the crime saying, “It was one Azeez that brought Barakat to my house for the abortion. It was after taking some pills that she developed the complication. I am regretting my actions now. I am only looking for a means of survival.”

The police also said Akilapa had fooled many people for a long time posing as a doctor.

.......and writing unbelievably ridiculous diagnosis.
