A fake doctor was paraded in Oyo state after defrauding 3 people of N23m, and got duped of N48m. Damilola Ojo who claimed to be a gynaecologist at the University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan had defrauded many of her patients including one Mrs. Funke Olagbaju Dollar.She reportedly treated Dollar and her husband for infertility.
The CP said,
“The suspect is popularly known in her church and in the neighborhood as Dr. Dammy Ojo“After collecting about N250, 000 and administering injections on Dollar and her husband for about 12 times without any fruitful result, the fake doctor introduced her to an oil and gas business. She also duped Dollar of N1, 350, 000,”
“However, luck ran out on her when another member of her syndicate, a herbalist, Asifu Ajinikirun, who also allegedly defrauded her to the tune of N48.5 million, was arrested.
“Damilola, who claimed she just got pregnant for her husband, said her herbalist, Ajinikirun, who was preparing charms for her to make her hospital flourish, also swindled her of N48.5 million.”
The fake doctor, who hails from Saki in the state, said she had operated two fake hospitals and was relocating from one rented apartment to the other in Oyo town and Ibadan in order to escape arrest.
The state Commissioner of Police, Leye Oyebade, said Ojo also defrauded her victims by telling them that she could use her contacts to help them get oil and gas contracts.
Caleb Owokunle, who allegedly lost N22m to Ojo, said,
“She told me that I could make a fortune out of oil and gas business. I took a loan of N2m from the Nigerian Breweries where I work. In all, she took everything I had, worth N22m. I fell victim because I did not listen to my wife who is very religious.
Damilola, confessing to the crime before newsmen, said she attended Ondo State Polytechnic where she studied Laboratory Technology but later veered into hospital management.
