Three persons who allegedly falsely paraded themselves as medical personnel have been arrested at Andoni Local Government Council in Rivers State.
The suspects, two males posing as doctors and a female posing as a Nurse were arrested in Asarama community of Andoni based on a tip-off from Head of Medical Personnel in the Local Government.
The suspects were identified as Gift Harvest who claim to be an auxiliary nurse, Dr. Patrick Effing and Williams Biranwi who claim to be medical personnel.
Erastus Awortu, Andoni Council Chairman, who confirmed the development said the suspects were on illegal medical mission to the local government without proof of qualifications.
He said the suspects who are quacks had even performed surgeries on some unsuspecting victims before they were caught.
While condemning the act, Awortu said the
suspects have been handed over to the police for further investigation with a view to uncovering their true intention.
