Kano govt arrests quack medical personel, shutdown clinic



Kano govt arrests quack medical personel, shutdown clinicAuthority of the Kano State Private Health Institution Management Agency [PHIMA] has shutdown a clinic allegedly operating with unqualified medical personnel.

The closure of the health facility named, Fresh-Care Clinic, situated in Dawakin Kudu Local Government Area of Kano was based on complaints by residents over alleged unprofessional conduct of operations.

The Executive Secretary of the agency Dr Usman Tijjani Aliyu stated this on Tuesday in a statement issued on Tuesday stressing that the persist complaints of patients’ mismanagement at the private health facility led to surveillance by the agency which subsequently exposed the quacks working at the clinic giving wrong diagnosis to unsuspecting patients.

The Executive Secretary said the illegal act was perpetrated due to alleged self-disengagement of the registered Medical Director of the clinic in the person of Dr Auwal Ahmad for months without formally notifying the Private Health Institution Management Agency.

He said the Medical Director and the Proprietor of the clinic would be prosecuted after investigation to serve as deterrent to others.

‘’All the unqualified staff arrested during the raid of the facility would be charged to court also to discourage and prevent this from recurring, ‘’said the statement.
