Ogun state government has said it is prosecuting no fewer than eight fake medical doctors in its on-going fight against quackery across the state.
Health commissioner, Dr. Babatunde Ipaye, who made this known to Rockcity FM in Abeokuta, said another three medical doctors are also standing before the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria for related offences.
Ipaye listed their offences as including impersonation, fake certificate and license, as well as, illegal operation among others.
The commissioner warned that, the state government will soon commence the second phase of the exercise in July, to ensure the state is rid of quackery activities, especially in the health sector.
No fewer than one hundred and eighty private hospitals have been shut since the exercise began since January 2016.
