Two quack doctors arrested in Abuja

:::::The Health and Human Services secretariat of the
Federal Capital Territory, on Wednesday, arrested
two quack doctors who carried out a cesarean
session on a pregnant woman in Abuja.
The secretary for the secretariat, Dr. Ademola
Onokumaya, who announced this to journalists,
said the two quack doctors were operating under
Neam Hospital in Kurudu area of the territory.
He said the patients that were operated by the
fake doctors had been evacuated to Karshi
General Hospital, where they are currently
receiving treatment.
Solomon Yehumba, the quack doctor that
operated on the pregnant woman and also carried
out an ovarian cystectomy on another young girl,
when questioned, said: “I did not do it on my
own, the owner of the place is the medical
director and is the only person that do monitor
our work, so we did not do it on our own.”
The other quack, Victor Bakosa, who insisted that he was a medical practitioner, could not
give a proper account of how he qualified as a medical doctor.
Dr. Evans Onyekwere, Registrar of the Private Health Establishment, Registration and
Monitoring Committee, while narrating how the two quack doctors were discovered, said:
“The man that actually did the surgery claimed to be the administrative head of the
hospital… by the time we put the fear of God into one of the staff, she opened up and told us
the truth.
“They don’t have documents to even show when and where they were trained. The other
man who said he was a dental therapist initially claimed to have been trained in Cameroon
and couldn’t provide answers when asked of his registration status.”
Dr. Onokumaya advised members of the public to be mindful of where they seek medical
attention, while warning quack doctors to stop playing with human lives.
Neam Hospital was registered with the Health and Human Services Secretariat some years
ago by Dr. Nyom Tewase, the owner of the hospital.
However, Tewase subsequently employed the two quack doctors to work for him, and he
relocated to Nasarawa state
