Doctor who worked in govt hospital for 11 years remanded for ‘certificate forgery’



The Kaduna state ministry of justice has charged Saidu Ya’u, an alleged fake medical doctor, before the chief magistrate court for certificate forgery and impersonation.

In a statement issued by the ministry, Aisha Dikko, attorney-general of the state, said Saidu was remanded at the Kaduna Correctional Facility until March 16.

Dikko said the first information report(FIR) indicated that Saidu has been working as a medical doctor for more than 11 years as a staff member of the ministry of health.

She said Nasir el- Rufai, governor of the state, had ordered the ministry to investigate Saidu, following a petition alleging that the accused has been working with fake certificates.

She said the ministry set up a four-member committee to investigate and verify the certificates and institutions that Saidu claimed to have attended as well as verify his registration with the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria(MDCN).

She said the committee found out that the accused forged the certificates he presented to the government to enable him to secure employment.

‘’Information gathered from Ahmadu Bello University(ABU) Zaria and MDCN also reveals that Saidu was neither admitted nor graduated from the university and was not registered with the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria,’’ Dikko said.

The attorney-general said when the FIR was read to the defendant, he claimed that all the charges against him were false.

She said the director of public prosecution (DPP) opposed the bail application made by the defendant’s counsel.

According to her, the DPP said the allegations against the defendant are “very weighty”, and that the exceptional circumstances for admitting such offenders to bail have not been complied with in line with section 174 of the state administration of justice law 2017.

The DPP requested for a date for further mention to enable him to conclude investigations on the matter.

The matter was adjourned till March 16.

COVID-19: Some Pastors are confused, afraid of losing earthly possessions – Mike Bamiloye



Following the ongoing debates on the alleged relationship between COVID-19 pandemic, 5G network and the Antichrist, Mike Bamiloye, founder of Mount Zion Faith Ministries International has alleged that some pastors are confused about heaven.

Bamiloye on his Instagram page on Tuesday said most pastors this time are not sure of heaven and are worried about losing their earthly possessions.

His post reads: “Some ministers of God are confused. They’re not sure of heaven, and they don’t want to lose their empire on earth. They are not expecting him.”

His post is coming at a time Matthew Ashimolowo, Pastor of Kingsway International Christian Centre, KICC, criticized Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and other pastors who are attributing the COVID-19 pandemic to 5G and Antichrist.

Oyakhilome in a viral video linked the Coronavirus and the 5G network to Antichrist.

However, Ashimolowo expressed disappointment in pastors who are allegedly bringing up the conspiracy theories.

He warned Christians to avoid being deceived by some Church leaders linking the current shock in the world to the Antichrist.

Also, Pastor Sam Adeyemi on Tuesday night debunked claims by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome that Churches were shut down by the government in order to install the 5G network.

Making reference to 1918, Adeyemi said Churches, Mosques, schools and markets were also shut in Nigeria during the influenza pandemic and it was not Anti-Christ.

He warned pastors against giving extreme interpretations to things happening in the world.
