Fake Doctor Arrested For Stealing N290,000 From Blind Man

The Kwara State Commandant of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, Adeyinka Ayinla, has paraded a suspect, Mr. Hammer Olalekan, before journalists for claiming to be a doctor.

Olalekan who hails from Odo Otin Local Government Area of Osun State was arrested at Aboto Oja in Asa Local Government Area of Kwara State.

The commandant, who spoke through the command’s PRO, Henry Bilesanmi, said while supposedly treating a blind man, the fake doctor transferred N290,000 into his personal account.

But Olalekan was said to have run out of luck when the patient’s son went to make a withdrawal on behalf of his father but discovered that there was no money left in the account.

He said subsequent request for a statement of the account then showed that the fake doctor carried out the withdrawal. He was only discovered to have no qualification after his arrest.

“Olalekan is under investigation and would be charged to court very soon. Exhibits found on him are syringe and needles, blood pressure machine, charms, ATM cards, etc,” the NSCDC said.

The suspect would also be charged to court very soon.
