According to a report reaching 9jatoday at this time, a quack doctor has allegedly killed a three-year-old baby after he reportedly transfused blood to the child at his medicine store.
As reported by the Guardian, the Nasarawa state command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has made an arrest of a quack medical practitioner who allegedly killed a three-year-old girl who he illegally transfused blood to.
Confirming the arrest, Mohammed Mahmoud-Fari, the state commandant of NSCDC reveals that its operatives paraded 27 years-old suspects, Muddansir Idris on Monday noon.
9jatoday understands that Muddansir was arrested on Monday at the Kofan-Sarkin-Power area of Lafia after the parents of the deceased had cried out on Friday, Jan. 31.
It was confirmed that Muddansir who claims to be a doctor, transfused blood to the 3-year-old child at a medicine store in the area, which resulted in bleeding from all her body openings.
Reacting to the incident, Mahmoud-Fari said “Sensing danger, the suspect ran away and the baby was rushed to the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, Lafia, where doctors tried frantically to save her life to no avail.”
“We were able to trace and arrest the suspect and also seal the premises.”
He, however, revealed that the command’s investigation show prove that the suspect had no record of professional qualification to practice as health personnel.
He further noted that the command is also carrying out investigation to fish out that blood donor, so the two can be charged for culpable homicide as soon as investigation is concluded.
Further investigation reveals that Muddansir is actually an environmental health officer, still receiving tutor at the School of Health Technology in Gboko, Benue state.
