130 hospitals, pharmacies run by fake doctors discovered in Kano
130 hospitals and pharmacies run by fake doctors have been found by a committee established by Alhaji Tijjani Matata, the Chairman of the Tudun Wada Local Government Area of Kano State.
The committee claims that during its investigation it was found that one of the fake doctors has a secondary school diploma and that another was an electrician who owned an eight-bed hospital and made claims to treat various illnesses there.
The committee’s chairman, Alhaji Abubakar Musa Karafe, expressed regret over one of the fake doctors injecting HIV-positive blood into a woman who visited his clinic for treatment of malaria.
He explained that an investigation had to be done to figure out the situation after receiving a number of complaints from residents about the proliferation of private hospitals and pharmacies in their various villages.
He expressed regret that the committee had even discovered an electrical engineer running a private hospital, caring for patients, writing prescriptions, giving drips, giving blood, and even helping expectant women.
“We even discovered one who sells conventional medicines, but he took in cholera patients. For proper care, we had to evacuate them to the hospital. The majority of them lack even the most fundamental knowledge of health, he emphasized.
One of the fake doctors, according to the chairman, claimed to be a nurse but was later found to only have a secondary school diploma.
He promised that everyone who was found guilty would experience the full force of the law.
