Covenant University — fake doctor caught during an interview
It was learnt that Omenka had applied for the position of Medical Officer and reportedly presented fake credentials, which included a photocopy of the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria registration certificate issued in 2015.
The 35-year-old suspect also presented a certificate from the Benue State University where he claimed to have obtained a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery, and graduated with a Second Class Upper Division.
It was gathered that the suspect, who works as an auxiliary nurse at some private hospitals, was caught during a job interview held at the Covenant University Medical Centre while being scrutinised by three doctors about his credentials.
Omenka’s cover was blown after he failed to justify why his MDCN registration number was the same as those who got the certificate four decades ago.
According to Punch, a source disclosed that the suspect during interrogation confessed to having obtained the fake certificates from racketeers at Oluwole in Lagos State.
The source said, “The man first went to Covenant University Health Centre last week to apply for the post of Medical Officer.
