PHOTOS: Fake Midwifery Nurse with forged certificates arrested in Lagos



A fake nurse identified as Olufunke Adegbenro who was deployed to Isolo General Hospital by the Lagos State Health Service Commission has been arrested for allegedly practising with a fake licence.

PUNCH correspondent reports that Adegbenro was caught during a verification exercise by officials of the National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwifery after allegedly collecting three months’ salaries from the state government.

It was learnt that Adegbenro allegedly forged a Bachelor of Nursing degree from the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho, a National Youth Service Corps discharge certificate, a registered nurse certificate from the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria, and a practising licence to get the job.

Confirming the incident, the Chairman of the NANNM, Lagos State, Olurotimi Awojide stated that his attention was drawn to the incident after verification officers discovered the fraud.

According to his statement he said, “About two weeks ago, we started our verification of practising licence in all our hospitals and the major reason was that we wanted to know those who had yet to renew their licence and that was when someone saw the licence and saw that it was different and not like others.

“Our attention was brought to it and as the chairman of the association, the licence was forwarded to me for scrutiny and I also confirmed that it was fake.

“I went to meet her to answer questions and get her documents. We invited policemen, who arrested her and took her to a police station. She did not deny any of the allegations; she confirmed that all the certificates with her were fake and the person that helped her to produce them was based in Ibadan.”
