During interrogation, the suspect, who was apprehended by residents and handed over to police at Area ‘M,’ Idimu, indicted two doctors and two nurses have already been arrested by the police in Lagos State. Among the suspects was a popular columnist on health matters in one of the national dailies.

He would give me some drugs to drink and also put on adult film.
“Each time I got pregnant, he would take me to a hospital. Whenever this doctor (pointing at one of them) wanted to do it, he would inject me, saying that the injection was for malaria.
“He would also tell me that it might result to me losing blood”, she said
