She said the arrest of the fake doctor was dramatic.
Her word, “We were suspicious when the owner of Ganny-Hash Clinic and Maternity Hospital in Ifo, Mr Ganiyu Okewole, presented the said fake Dr Sunday Adeyeye’s certificate for re-validation of his facility.
“We then asked him to bring the doctor in person which is one of our requirements for the exercise.
“Going through the Ahmadu Bello University certificate he presented and comparing it with the ministry’s records, there we discovered he has been practicing with a forged certificate and we immediately call in the police to effect his arrest.’’
