The Bayelsa State Police Command has arrested a 40-year-old man, Tari Ogede, for impersonating as a medical practitioner in Angiama, Southern Ijaw Local Government Area.
The suspect who hails from Amassoma in Southern Ijaw Local Government of the state was arrested on December 31, 2022 after he made effort to carry out a cesarean section on a young pregnant girl in December 25, 2022, which led to the death of the baby and damages caused to the young girl.
The Permanent Secretary, Bayelsa Ministry of Health, Dr. Oluwatoyin Azebi, who made this known in Yenaoga shortly after her visit to the State Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Police Headquarters frowned at the increased rate of quackery in the medical profession and its health implications for the people of the state, noting that the trend is not only illegal but dangerous as it has caused a number of maternal and child mortality cases and other deaths.
The Permanent Secretary condemned the act of persons carrying out various medical activities without the requisite qualifications,
“I am surprised… Somebody that does not even have up to secondary level of education was found involved in trying to do a cesarean section for a 15-year-old girl, eventually cut the lady and was not able to go on with the surgery and also killed the baby,” she said.
