An illegal hospital that has been in operation for 23 years under a Ghanaian has been discovered in Mafoluku, Lagos by the Police.
The hospital was been run by a man, identified as Hayfore Adu-Peprah, who reportedly came to Nigeria as a nursing tutor in 1982 before proceeding to establish the illegal facility in 1996.
His end came when a lady lost her baby after visiting the hospital in September because her legs were swollen.
“The nurse asked her to go for another scan which she did when she came back one of the nurses directed her to go to a general hospital when she got there she spent two days there before they transferred her to Ayinke House Ikeja.
“Two weeks later I came back here to ask the doctor what happened, he said that he knew the baby (of his relative) had died in her womb for 2 weeks but didn’t know how to tell her”.
During his interrogation, Hayfore denied ever identifying himself as a “doctor”. According to Channels Television, Hayfore claimed he was suffering from hypertension, diabetes and kidney disease. He also could not produce the certificate he claimed to have obtained before operating a private nursing home.
