Illegal hospital operator nabbed in Ogun

The long arm of the law has caught up with an illegal hospital and maternity home operator, Julius Afolabi, in the Abule-Iroko, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state after he was arrested following a complaint.

According to Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state Police Public Relations Officer, trouble started when a patient, Femi Adelaja paid the sum of N200,000 for a fibroid operation, but the hospital operator was unable to remove the fibroid prompting the patient to report the case at the Sango Police Station.

“The Divisional Police Officer of the station detailed detectives to investigate the case and it was discovered that the self-acclaimed doctor and medical Director of Adeolu Afolabi Clinic and Maternity Home has never gone through any formal training that can qualify him to operate such outfit.” Oyeyemi said.

Continuing, the state PPRO added that efforts are underway to charge the suspect to court after investigations have been concluded following the orders of the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu.

      Only God knows how people survive in this state. The security is nothing to write home about at all.

    The number is unlicenced hospitals operating in the country is actually more than those that are licensed. The Police should be more proactive!
