Nze Charles has been arrested by the police
A 38-year-old fake doctor, Charles Nze, who duped a cancer patient the sum of N4 million has been arrested by the police. He was paraded at the Lagos State Police Command Headquarters, Ikeja. The heartless man had claimed he was a dentist from the Calcutta State University, India.
Explaining how he obtained the money from the victim's family he said: "The cancer patient is a family friend. I decided to assist them and bring the patient from another hospital. I was treating her as an outpatient. 

“When I commenced treatment on the patient, she was getting better. But suddenly the family discovered that I was a dentist and said I overcharged them.
According to NewTelegraph, Nze further revealed that after the family found out he was a fraudster, they asked him to refund N2 million out of the money he had duped them but he refused.

“It was when I could not return the N2 million that I was arrested by military policemen at Obalende Barracks. The military police later handed me over to the police. 
“Three weeks after I started treating the patient, she started getting better. Before I started treating her, she was weighing 33 kilogrammes and could not walk, but now she can walk and weighs 47kg.” he said.
One of the victim’s family members revealed that Nze lied to them that he was a medical doctor, but they later got to know that he was a fake doctor. Explaining their own side of the story, he said:
“When we first met he said he was an oncologist at 9 Brigade, Maryland and studied in India and London. My sister had been sick for some years. He promised to come and see her. “When he came, after diagnosing her, he told us that she had gastric cancer. He charged us N270,000. He said he was going to get drugs. 
“After 30 minutes, my sister, who was crying that she could not walk, started walking. That was what impressed us that he was actually a genuine doctor.

“He said to continue with the treatment, we needed to act fast because she might die anytime. That was how he billed us another $10,000.
“I sold my property and also took loans from my friends to raise the money because my parents could not afford such amount of money.

“After a while, he came back and asked for more money. Then, my wife told me that my sister was not getting better but I did not listen to her. I sold my wife’s car and gave him the money.

“Again, he came to demand additional money. It was then I told him to leave the patient alone. I said if she was going to die, she should die because we have exhausted our money.
"It was there I discovered he was not a doctor. The military police arrested him and handed him over to the police.” 
The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni, urged the public to beware of the kind of people they relate with. Owoseni advised the people to go to registered medical centres for medical attention.
