The Kano State Private Health Institution Management Agency under the state’s Ministry of Health in a joint operation with the Nigerian Medical Association, have arrested an alleged fake doctor said to have been practicing in the state for years.
According to PHIMA Secretary, Usman Tijjani Aliyu, the man was identified as Ibrahim Adamu and was arrested while posing as doctor at a hospital in the state.

He said the suspect had confessed that he was working with someone else’s document, which stole from the owner.
