Read the full story below…

In this week’s episode of Africa Investigates,
Anas Arameyaw Anas and Rosemary Nwaebuni
go undercover with secret cameras to expose
fake doctors in Delta State, leading to three
on-camera arrests.

Nigerian law forbids abortions, except in cases
where the patient’s life is in danger. Despite
this, Nigeria’s Fake Doctors shows Rosemary,
who is not even pregnant, twice being offered
a******n services from unlicensed
practitioners.

Precious Johnson Chuckwudi, who operates a
pharmacy in Delta State, offered to provide an
a******n – and agreed the price – despite
Rosemary’s negative pregnancy test, while Mr
and Mrs Ogboru offered Rosemary an
a******n in the dirty backroom of a bar,
without conducting a pregnancy test.

The Nigerian Medical and Dental Association
(NMDA) and Ministry of Health (MoH) have
confirmed that neither Chuckwudi nor the
Ogboru’s are licensed and registered as
medical doctors and that their shops are not
registered clinics.

Nigerian police arrested Mr and Mrs Ogboru
on camera on the basis of evidence that
Rosemary and Anas filmed.

Nigerian police also arrested Charles Igudala,
who operates a clinic at Dictat Royal Home in
Warri, Delta State, after he was covertly filmed
offering medical services and injections to Anas
in extremely unsanitary conditions.

The NMDA and MoH confirmed that Igudala is
not a licensed and registered doctor, while Dr
Alfred Ebiakofa of the Nigerian Ministry of
Health said that Igudala had been a target of
the Nigerian health authorities for some time,
but that they “had not been able to catch him
before.”

Rosemary and Anas also film other fake
doctors wrongly diagnosing healthy patients
with malaria and typhoid, as well using as a
Quantum Resonance Analyser, a highly
controversial machine of unproven
effectiveness that is used to illegally diagnose –
merely on the basis of tones and lights – a
variety of serious illnesses to perfectly healthy
patients.

Spell of The Albino, the last investigation Anas
filmed for Africa Investigates, won a One
World Media Award and was nominated for a
Royal Television Society Award.

Nigeria’s Fake Doctors, the third episode of
Africa Investigates, premiered on Wednesday,
26 November 2014 at 22:30 GMT / Thursday,
20 November at 00:30 CAT, with repeats on 27
