‘Fake doctor’ remanded over alleged murder of patient

An Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Monday, remanded a 45-year-old ‘fake doctor,’ Adegoke Olaoluwa, for the alleged murder of his patient, 45-year-old Adekunle Badmus.

Olaoluwa, from the Idi-Aro area of Ibadan, is facing one count of murder.

The Magistrate, A.T. Oyediji, who did not take the defendant’s plea, ordered that Olaoluwa be remanded in the Agodi Correctional Centre in Ibadan, pending legal advice from the office of the state Directorate of Public Prosecution.

The Police Prosecutor, Inspector Opeyemi Olagunju, had earlier told the court that the defendant had, on Tuesday, February 20, at about 10.00am, at Mercy Clinic and Maternity, Idi-Aro, Ibadan, caused the death of one Badmus, 45, unlawfully.

Olagunju said, “The defendant administered saline drugs to the patient without lawful justification.

“The offence is contrary to Section 316 and punishable under Sections 319 and 484 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Oyo State, 2000.

“While Section 484 stipulates three years imprisonment for an offender, Section 319 prescribes a death sentence.”
