A quack nurse has caused the death of a pregnant woman

A woman who has been parading herself as a nurse and midwife at Bamikeno village in the Ile-Oluji/Okeigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State, after a pregnant woman identified as Ayo, died while giving birth to a set of twin babies, Vanguard reports.

According to information, the suspect had been working at the local hospital for years without the people knowing she was a quack nurse as she had no professional qualification.

After the deceased woman put to birth successfully, she was said to have become unconscious and the suspect could not resuscitate her, leading to the woman's death, a development that did not go down well with the family of the woman who reported the matter at the police station and she was subsequently arrested.

The State Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Femi Joseph, who confirmed the incident, said the the woman died as a result of complications that arose after she had been delivered of the babies and her corpse has been deposited at the General Hospital mortuary.

“When the woman was about putting to bed, the nurse offered to take the delivery, knowing fully well that she does not have the professional qualification to do that.

In the process of doing that complications arose, which led to the death of that woman. That is why we arrested the nurse.”
