Medical doctors at the Ondo State Mother and Child Hospital, Trauma Centre, Ondo town, are battling to save the life of a nine-month pregnant woman, operated upon by a quack doctor, Rabiu Olalekan, at a private hospital in Orita Ojo, in Odigbo council area of the state.

The 31-year-old suspect, who was paraded by the state Police Commissioner, Oyeyemi Oyediran, carried out a cesarean section, CS, on a pregnant woman.

Oyediran said that the suspect, “who has been parading himself as a medical doctor and CMD of Iremide Private Hospital, Orita Ojo, Odigbo Local Government Area was arrested by a team of Special Intervention Squad, when a report of unprofessionalism was reported against him.

“The suspect carried out a caesarian section on a pregnant woman (name withheld) who was later rushed to Mother and Child Hospital due to excessive bleeding from her private part.

“It was discovered that the self-acclaimed doctor stitched the womb and the urinary tract together. During investigation, it was discovered that the suspect is not a doctor but attended the School of Health Technology, Ijebu-Ode, where he studied Community Health Extension Work, but had been deceiving the people by claiming to be a medical doctor.

“He also claimed he invited one Dr. Bayo to help him carry out the caesarian section on the victim, but that his phone number was not going through.”
