SEE the Fake Doctor Who Runs Abuja Hospital for 10 Years Undetected (PHOTOS)


According to Daily Trust, Victor Moffat Akpan ran a private hospital, Luna Maternity & Surgery, for 10 years in Gwarimpa, Abuja, and offered surgeries and antenatal care, using forged certificates. He opened the hospital in 2006 as a “surgeon” using a forged practice licence, 4 years after MDCN refused to grant him licence to practice as a homeopath.

He's understood to have delivered by caesarean section a set of conjoined twins who later died at National Hospital in 2013. MDCN did not grant him a homeopathic practice licence because the school he claimed to have graduated from in Enugu was unapproved to train students in alternative medicine.

During questioning, Akpan told police that in 2002 he paid N15,000 to one Mike Nwagbara, then an administrative official with the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital in Enugu state, to get a forged MDCN practice certificate.

The certificate used a folio number—unique to every doctor—registered to a Dr Tuoyo Awani, a 1995 medicine and surgery graduate of University of Benin. His 1990 Senior School Certificate from Eastern Nsit Secondary School, Odot, showed he had no pass in any of his six subjects, scored all 7s and 8s apart from an A3 in Geography.

Investigations show Akpan presented the forged documents to unsuspecting officials of Private Health Establishment and Monitoring Committee (PHEMC), which regulates private health outfits in Abuja, to get Luna registered.

His big patient load goes back to 2007, and his clinic expanded to hire five staff, working in a converted apartment where he performed caesarean sections, removed fibroids and delivered babies from women.

Some documents also thought forged, show him to have interned at a Calvary International Hospital, Enugu in 1996, done his NYSC with Prisons in 1997, attended an update course by the West African College of Surgeons in 2001 and a postgraduate course on the “scientific basis of obstetrics and gynaecology in 2002.
