A fake nurse named Taibat Jegede, popularly called “Alhaja,” has been sentenced to seven years in prison after conducting a failed abortion on a patient who died during the procedure.

The deceased experienced bleeding complications after the failed abortion in May 2012, and subsequently died, Daily Post reports.

Investigations revealed that Jegede  dropped out from the College of Health Technology, Akure in 2006. Also, the abortion was conducted at the the accused’s one-bedroom apartment, which she shared with the deceased.

Jegede initially lied to authorities, claiming that she had treated the deceased for body pain when she complained of irregularities from her menstrual period. However, investigations revealed she was lying, and that a failed abortion was the cause of death.

    Hmmm everyone is blaming the fake nurse, i am not disputing the fact that the fake nurse is very very wrong, but what of the deceased? In most cases, the fake doctors are always pleaded upon to perform the abortion, many times, they do it out of pity for the lady asking for the abortion. Why will she choose to take life out of an innocent upcoming foetus whose life is dependent on her. I really pray she made heaven though. #myopinionthough

      The fake nurse needs to be blamed. I do not want any fake health professional dealing with me or my loved ones. I can a handle a fake lawyer, accountant, minister, judge, chef anything else, but I will not tolerate a fake doctor or nurse, the job they do can determine if you end up dead or alive. Both my parents have high blood pressure and cholesterol and I would not want to know that someone gave them a wrong prescription and killed them off because they wanted to play dress up as a nurse or a doctor. She needed her ass beat before they tossed her under the jail, evil witch.

      Dear, nursingcrusader, if you are really a nurse/healthcare professional , your comment is absolutely unprofessional. The post shows that the quack attended college of health . It did not state that medical doctors trained her . Besides, a trained and well qualified doctor knows he is not supposed to train any healthcare worker. that person goes to the proper institution to obtain the proper training, its basic requirement for employment. Don’t go about giving false information about the health system if not people will lose confidence in our healthcare system.
