    A Magistrate Court in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, has sentenced a bogus medical doctor to four years in prison.

    Recall that the defendant, Akpoviri Vincent Jimmy, was apprehended in June following a tip from Tobis Clinic, where he was discovered impersonating one Dr Charles Umeh, a medical doctor in Taraba State.

    He applied for positions in Delta and Bayelsa States using Dr Umeh’s documents, claiming to be a practising surgeon and seeking work at Tobis Clinic.

    The convict, an Urhobo man from Delta State’s Ethiope West local government area, was initially detected in Ughelli when he didn’t have the necessary medical terminology and was nabbed when he returned to Yenagoa to continue his schemes.

    Mrs Michael Akata R.G. (Esq. ), a Senior Magistrate who presided over the case, gave the maximum penalty the court allows for such an offence, which is four years in jail with hard labour.

    She noted that it will serve as a deterrent to others who engage in such actions in the state, as the state government has demonstrated that it will not tolerate them.

    In response to the ruling, the Prosecutor, Barr. Philip W. Soroh noted that the case involves impersonation and forgery and that he was called to action by the state’s Solicitor General, Preye Agedah, to ensure that justice is done.

    He said that the decision was made less than two months after the arrest and that Bayelsa is an unproductive ground for impersonation since the judiciary is proactive and will make a decision quickly.
