An alleged quack doctor at the National Hospital in Abuja identified as Obiako Chukwuemeka, who disguised to be working with the United Nations, has been discovered and turned over to the police.
Chukwuemeka, whose origin and age are unclear, has been detained pending his arraignment, according to a reliable source within the Federal Capital Territory Police Command, PUNCH reports.
The source said, “The National Hospital Abuja, handed over a fake doctor, one Obiako Chukwuemeka who disguised as a UN doctor on humanitarian aid, to the police at Central Police Station on Thursday.
“He is currently in our custody, and will soon be charged to court.”
This comes after the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Muhammad Bello, claimed that traders, beggars, and tourists from neighbouring states were responsible for the security breaches in Abuja and threatened to expel them.
The minister said, “The security agencies in the FCT have (stepped) up their game. People who have no business being here, are being sent away. Some of them come under different guises such as begging, and street trading, among others. They usually come from neighbouring states and are causing security breaches here. That is why we have decided to send them out.”
“The G-7 Joint Security Operation, which is currently being revived, has received support from sister security organizations as well as the Commissioners of Police in the member states, according to Sunday Babaji, the FCT Police Commissioner. They have all agreed that it is necessary to jointly flush out these criminals.”
He disclosed that all criminals under its purview would shortly be pursued by the security authorities, who had accumulated useful and actionable intelligence.
