The Nigeria Police detachment at the State House yesterday arrested and paraded a fake medical doctor who claims that he works for the State House clinic.
The suspect, Mr. Emmanuel Elenga, admitted he was not a doctor, but claimed that he graduated from the University of Port Harcourt with a B. Sc degree in Medical Records in 1989.
A business card bearing the name, "Dr. E. M. Elenga, State House Clinic, Aso Rock Villa, Abuja", some Federal Government files, a stethoscope, syringes, some assorted drugs and an equipment for checking blood pressure were found on Elenga. Also found in his possession were several business cards, including those of some prominent Nigerians, some of which are believed to have been forged.
Mr. Elenga said he attended some courses in the medical field after his degree, which enables him to carry out such diagnosis like checking blood pressure.
A statement from Mrs Remi Oyo, senior special assistant to the President on Media said Mr Elenga will soon be charged to court
