Lagos State Police Command, yesterday, paraded a 40-year-old man, Adeyemi Stephen Akintolure, a suspected fake medical doctor, who claimed to be a staff of Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, with card No. 13541, identifying him as a surgeon and gynaecologist.
The fake medical doctor was also said to have fraudulently obtained N500,000 from one Joy Umosekhaimhe of 2, Adesanya Close, Ifeko-Gbagada.
Akintolure, who said he uses the wife’s car as a mobile clinic, said the money in question was borrowed from Umosekhaimhe, adding “actually, it was not N500,000.
It was N260,000 she lent me to use for my brother’s ailment.”
He said he is from Ondo State, studied Marketing at ObafemiAwolowoUniversity, Ife, as a part-time student and graduated in 1997.
According to Akintolure, “I have not treated more than 10 people. I just treat them for malaria and typhoid and I also give injections too because of my experience at RivicHospital at Akure.”
When asked how he got the identity card, he said he got it from a business centre and that the computer operator signed it for him.
