25 "quack" doctors uncovered in Rivers State

The Rivers State branch of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has found out 25 fake doctors operating in the state. NMA state chairman, Dr Ibitroekeme Korubo, disclosed this development in Port Harcourt on Friday by the association’s taskforce against quackery.

He said it was unfortunate that some persons would decide to operate as doctors without possessing the necessary qualification.

``It is really bad. We are talking about human life here; so it is worrisome that someone that is not qualified will want to venture into the profession. We have gone to the hospitals where they work, we have told their employers to produce them for necessary action,’’ he said.
