'Doctor' Infects 6-Year-Old With HIV In Nasarawa

A 30-year-old man alleged to be operating an illegal clinic and infecting a 6-year-old boy with HIV through transfusion of unscreened blood has been arrested by the Nasarawa State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

The state Commandant of NSCDC, Mr Lawan Bashir-Kano, disclosed yesterday in Lafia that the suspect, Jonathan Ibrahim, was arrested on July 17th.

He said that Ibrahim, who hails from Iwashi village in Doma Local Government Area of the state,
was arrested following complaint about his activities from members of the public.

Bashir-Kano said preliminary investigations revealed that the suspect, who operates an unregistered clinic, last year, transfused contaminated blood to the 6-year-old boy, thereby infecting him with HIV.

He said the parents of the boy recently discovered that he had been infected with the virus.

He added that tests carried out on the lad in Lafia following frequent illness showed that he was HIV positive.

The commandant said the suspect had confessed to running an illegal clinic and transfused unscreened blood to the patient in question at his facility last year.

Bashir-Kano said the command, in collaboration with the state Ministry of Health, as well as the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria in the state would ensure that the suspect was prosecuted.

“If such persons are not made to face the wrath of the law, there would be increased cases of untimely death occasioned by fake medical treatment,” he said.

The commandant called on members of the public to be vigilant and wary of fake medical practitioners. He added that they should report any suspicious medical personnel or outfit to security agencies for action.

The suspect who told newsmen he graduated from the School of Health Technology, Keffi as an environmental health officer, confessed that he had no license to operate the clinic.

Senate President, Saraki Gets Approval To Declare Buhari's Office Vacant

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, is set to declare President Muhammadu Buhari’s seat vacant, if the ailing President fails to show up, in the next 18 days.
This came into consideration on Wednesday, when a pro-democracy group laid bare plans to commence a daily sit-out at the National Assembly in 18 days, if the Legislature fails to respond to the health problem of Buhari, as prescribed by the 1999 Constitution.

In a statement released by its leader, Deji Adeyanju, and Secretary, Dr. John Danfulani, the group noted that “Buhari has now been absent from office, and from Nigeria for 72 days, and if the situation
remains unchanged, it would commence the sit-out on the 90th day of his absence”.

“The Leadership of the National Assembly must choose between the Nigerian people and the cabal”, Concerned Nigerians declared.

“72 days is too long for a Commander-in-Chief to be away from his country, without any explanation to the people that voted him in”, the group said.

“We hereby, demand that the National Assembly invokes Section 144 (4) of the Nigerian Constitution, and direct the setting up of a Medical Panel, in conjunction with the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, to ascertain whether the President is incapacitated”, the statement continued.

“If the President is found with any infirmity that renders him incapable of discharging his duties, the Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, shall officially declare him incapable of discharging his duties, and declare his office vacant, as prescribed in (2) of section 143”, the group declared.
