A man has landed in hot soup for parading himself as a medical doctor.


The 49-year-old man, Mr Akpoviri Vincent Jimmy was caught allegedly using a fake license claiming to be a medical doctor and seeking jobs in Bayelsa and Delta states.


Bayelsa police spokesperson Asinim Buswat said the suspect claimed to be one Dr. Charles Umeh, a serving medical doctor in Taraba state before being busted. 


Jimmy who hails from Ethiope West local government area of Delta State, was first exposed in Ughelli when he failed to know the correct terminologies a qualified medical doctor should know and use.


He was said to have claimed to be working in a hospital in Bayelsa, prompting the hospital in Ughelli to probe him.  Buswat added that he will be charged to court upon conclusion of investigations.


Upon being questioned by newsmen, Jimmy revealed that he is a graduate of Psychology from Delta State University. He said he has some knowledge of medicine which was why he carried out such activities using the credentials of his friend, Dr Charles Umeh without his knowledge. 


According to him, he got his knowledge of medicine while working as a P.A to the late Dr Ajoke in Sapele. He further disclosed that he has not worked as a medical doctor before and only started parading himself as one recently.
