Prior to his arrest, the suspect, a school certificate holder, without a formal training, had been operating an unregistered clinic in a one-bedroom mud apartment, treating unsuspecting patients of different ailments.
Intelligence also revealed that the suspect had been placing patients on admission, and had been performing abortions and handling very complex medical conditions, which he lacks professional expertise to handle.
Naheem confessed to the crime but blamed his action on joblessness, adding that although he has no certificate, he learned auxiliary nursing at a yet-to-be identified private hospital.
When a search was conducted in his illegal ‘clinic’ located in a filthy environment, the following items were recovered: stethoscope, sphygmomanometer (blood pressure gauge), drips, injection and syringe.
Others are: circumcision set, HCG Pregnancy Rapid Test (urine) Accurate, scalpel and other theater instruments, drips, thermometer, analgesic and assorted drugs.
