Quack nurse

A fake nurse has been arrested and jailed for 7-years after she botched a surgery that caused her client her life.

Taibat Jegede, popularly called Alhaja, was Tuesday, reportedly sentenced to 7 years imprisonment in Ado Ekiti for killing a client, one Seyi Ibitoye.

Ibitoye died after Alhaja attempted to carry out an abortion on her which allegedly went bad.

The accused had once been imprisoned on a similar charge.

The deceased had died of bleeding complications in May 2012.

She reportedly dropped out from the College of Health Technology, Akure in 2006.

According to reports, the abortion was one of the series carried out by the accused and it was done in her one bedroom apartment, where she was neighbours with the deceased.

Meanwhile, Alhaja who claimed to be a licensed agent, claimed she had worked in different places, including the British American Tobacco clinic in Ibadan, the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital and eventually in Rauz Hospital, Apo in Abuja.

The lady who is in her 30’s, reportedly claimed that she had treated the deceased for body pains when she complained of irregularities from her menstrual period.

The presiding Judge, Justice Abodunde, ruled that the evidence administered were the best guide to convict the accused, since a trial court can convict on even single evidence proven beyond reasonable doubt.
