Nigerian doctor allegedly transfuses HIV-infected blood into boy

A man who has been parading himself as a doctor was arrested for allegedly transfusing HIV-infected blood into a little boy.
The man identified as 

Jonathan Sidi-Ibrahim, was arrested after he was discovered to be a quack doctor who had infected his 6-year-old patient, Emmanuel Alaku, with HIV.
According to reports from PUNCH, Sidi-Ibrahim who eventually confessed to running an illegal clinic at Iwashi Dogo of Sarking Dawaki ward, Doma local government area of Nasarawa state since 2015, had transfused his patient with blood which was already infected with the much dreaded virus.
He was arrested by men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) in the state.
Confirming the incident, the Nasarawa state NSCDC commandant, Mr Lawal Bashir-Kano, who said the suspect will feel the full weight of the law, said:

“The suspect was arrested for operating an unregistered, illegal clinic known as Abrason Destiny Clinic. Preliminary investigations revealed that the suspect, in 2015, transfused unscreened and infected blood into an unsuspecting patient and in the process caused the patient to be infected with HIV.”

“I have been operating an illegal clinic since 2015 after I graduated from the School of Health, Keffi, in Keffi Local Government Area of Nasarawa state. My clinic is not registered and I have carried out surgical procedures on people in the state.”

Mr Sylvester Alaku, Emmanuel’s father, blamed his wife for endangering their son by taking him to the illegal clinic that has now left them in this unfortunate situation.

‘Psquare should be arrested for insulting the government’ – APC youth group (photo)

-The government recently declared that all musicians are banned from producing their music outside the country

– FG’s ban sparked outrage from Peter Okoye the other half of the P-square group

– Peter Okoye went ahead to insult the government on social media after the ban was made known

Following the attack from Peter Okoye, Youth Renaissance, a group claiming to be part of the All Progressives Congress, has called for the arrest of P-square.

NAIJ.com had reported that the other half of P-square, Peter Okoye, had expressed that he is ashamed of the country. He also noted that the government had been failing since 1960.

While reacting to the comments made by Peter, the group urged security agencies to arrest him for making rude comments about the government.

“APC youth group” allegedly calls for Psquare’s arrest Photo Source: Instagram user Peter Okoye Collins Edwin, national secretary to the group, noted that the government’s decision to ban the production of music abroad was to provide jobs in the entertainment industry.

Read statement below: “We read the scurrilous remarks credited to Mr Peter Okoye of the Psquare group against the Federal Government’s job-saving policy in the entertainment industry with great anger and vexation.”

“Least of all persons to make scathing remark against the government is the Psquare group which the local content policy of the Federal Government dusted-up from the valley of obscurity.

“Where was Peter Okoye or Psquare brand in 1999 when foreign music dominated our airwaves? If not for the government policy which mandated all broadcast stations in Nigeria to pay attention to Nigerian music by playing 95 percent of Nigerian songs every day, would Peter Okoye or Psquare be known to anybody in Nigeria today?”

“Or would they have competed with better American music which dominated our airwaves then?“

However, the presidency while describing the report as unfounded, said Buhari was alive and enjoying his holiday.

To further confirm the report that the president was not dead, presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina on Monday morning released some pictures of the President watching him (Adesina) as a guest on Channels TV on Sunday.

In the pictures, Buhari was spotted donning a black kaftan and a black cap in a palour while watching Adesina on Channels Television.

He wrote on his official Facebook page, “As he holidays in London, President Muhammadu Buhari keeps abreast with events at home. On Sunday, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, was guest of Channels Television. President Buhari also kept a date, January 22, 2017.”

The presidency has maintained that President Muhammadu Buhari is alive and not dead.

Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to President Buhari, disclosed this via his verified Twitter handle, @GarShehu.

“He is alive and well! President Buhari is not magical. He cannot be holidaying in the UK & be in Germany, dead or alive at the same time,” he noted.

“He is unlike a past President who was at Ota, w/ Chief Obj & attending the Trump inauguration in D.C, being in two places at the same time!” Shehu added in a subtle attack on immediate past president, Goodluck Jonathan.

Shehu’s tweets were aimed at dispelling rumours that President Buhari died in a London hospital on Saturday.

Recall that Buhari on Thursday left Nigeria for the United Kingdom on a ten-day medical vacation.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, in a statement, said the leave is part of the president’s annual vacation and he (Buhari) is expected to resume work on February 6, 2017.

The presidential spokesman also stated that during the vacation, President Buhari would also undergo routine medical check-ups.

“What is wrong with going on vacation? Didn’t I go last year at the same time?”, Buhari quizzed while responding to a question from the journalists on his way to London.

The Presidency also said that there is absolutely nothing to worry about over Buhari’s medical vacation, adding that, however, a lot of good will and prayers are necessary at all times.

Adesina spoke shortly after the president had told journalists that there was nothing wrong with going on vacation.

Asked if there is anything to worry about, the presidential spokesman responded:

“Nothing absolutely nothing! We need to show good will towards our leaders, particularly President Muhammadu Buhari who is working to give Nigeria a new footing, a new orientation.

“Nothing absolutely to worry about, but a lot of good will, a lot prayers are necessary at all times.”

Adesina also said: “The president is going to rest. You know that God did work of creation for six days and on the seventh day he rested. So, if God needed to rest, how much more human being? So, the president is just going to rest and the statement we have released is straight forward. He will go on this leave and during the leave, he will do routine medical checkups.”
