He was arrested at his hospital, Be Well Hospital, which is located on Liverpool Road, Apapa. While speaking to the police, Celestine admitted that he had been practising since 2005 and two patients have died in his hospital.

He confessed that he paid a colleague N70,000 to obtain fake certificates from the Nigerian Medical Association and the University of Ibadan, Oyo State.

“I take care of general ailments,” he said, “only two persons have died in the hospital. The first patient died in 2013.

“The second patient was a woman who died two weeks ago. The woman was pregnant, she also had high blood pressure. After giving her the initial treatment, I planned to refer her to a bigger hospital, but she died before I could move her. Her baby also died.”

The State Commissioner of Police confirmed the arrest adding that, “We found a fake University of Ibadan MBBS certificate, a fake Dental and Medical Council of Nigeria certificate and a fake Corporate Affairs Commission certificate in his house.”

Quite a sad tale. It is important for people to double check the kinds of medical practitioners they entrust their life with.
