No less than 130 hospitals and pharmacies operated by fake doctors have been discovered in the Tudun Wada Local Government Area of Kano State.
PLATFORM TIMES gathered that a secondary school certificate and an electrical engineer were part of those operating private hospitals.
PLATFORM TIMES further gathered that the fake hospitals and pharmacies were discovered by a committee inaugurated by the chairman of the local government council, Ahmad Tijjani Matata .
The chairman of the committee, Abubakar Musa Karafe, said that one of the fake doctors infused HIV-positive blood in a woman who attended his clinic for treatment of malaria.
Karafe added that one of the fake doctors has a secondary school certificate, adding that one of them was an electrical engineer who has been operating a private hospital in Kano State.
He said: “It is disheartening that we even found an electrical engineer operating a private hospital and attending to patients; prescribing drugs, administering drips, blood and even attending to pregnant women. One of them even added HIV-positive blood to one woman.
“We even found one who is a traditional medicine vendor, but he admitted cholera patients. We had to evacuate them to the hospital for proper treatment. Most of them don’t even have basic knowledge about health.
“One of them said he was a nurse, and later we discovered he only has a secondary school leaving certificate.”
Karafe, however, said the committee will take proper action against the fake doctors and ensure they face the wrath of the law.
