NMA reacts to reports linking member to banditry in Zamfara

The Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) has denied reports linking medical doctors with banditry in Zamfara State.

The association’s state Chairman, Dr Mannir Bature in a statement on Friday, while reacting to reports which said that ‘Police in Zamfara arrested a medical doctor, seven others in connection with banditry”, said the suspect is a Medical Laboratory Technician, parading himself as a medical doctor to defraud individuals.

“Our attention has been drawn to a publication from various media organisations with a caption, ‘Police in Zamfara arrest medical doctor, 7 others in connection with banditry.

“We will like to make it clear to the general public that the above caption is incorrect.

“Investigations revealed that the person in question is a Medical Laboratory Technician, posing as a medical doctor to defraud individuals.

“This person is neither a resident nor does he work in Zamfara State.

“Lastly, only holders of MBBS, MBChB and BDS are entitled to be called medical doctor,” he said.
