The Lagos State Police Command Headquarters in Ikeja, has arrested and paraded a 38-year-old fake doctor identified as Charles Nze, who claimed to be a dentist from the Calcutta State University, India, for allegedly duping a cancer patient of N4 million.
According to a report by New Telegraph, the suspect admitted collecting the money from the victim’s family but said it was meant for drugs and equipment to treat the patient.
Speaking to a correspondent, a member of the victim’s family members on the side line of the parade, disclosed that Nze lied to them that he was a medical doctor, but they later got to know that he was a fake doctor.
According to him, Nze later told the family members that because he had compassion for the patient, he was going to loan them N1 million, while they should look for the remaining.
The man said he later went to the barracks where Nze claimed he was working and made enquiries about him. “It was there I discovered he was not a doctor. The military police arrested him and handed him over to the police,” he said.
