Ilorin Court orders Suspected fake Doctor to be Remanded
An Ilorin Magistrates’ Court on Thursday remanded a suspected fake doctor, Omololu Adebayo, for allegedly parading himself as a trained medical practitioner.
The 30-year-old was said to have been practising without requisite professional qualification since 2012.
The police prosecutor, Insp Nasiru Yusuf, told the court that the accused was working at Day Spring Medical Centre, Tanke, with a forged University of Ilorin certificate.
Yusuf said investigation revealed that the accused presented a forged Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery certificate to the owner of the hospital which got him a job as medical doctor.
He said a petition written against the accused by the Ilorin branch of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) led to his arrest on Friday.
Yusuf said that the accused was arraigned on a two- count charge of forgery and impersonation, contrary to sections 364 and 179 of the Penal Code Law.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The prosecutor objected to bail of the accused on the ground that the alleged offences were not ordinarily bailable.
The counsel to the accused, Mr Oladehinde Adeseko, applied for bail of his client on liberal terms.
He argued that section 36 (5) of the Nigerian Constitution still presumed the accused innocent until the contrary was proved.
The Magistrate, Mr Mohammed Ibrahim, ordered that the accused be remanded in Mandala prison, Ilorin, and adjourned the case to Monday for mention. (NAN)
