The police in Ondo State have arrested a nurse, Favour Adebiyi, said to be a quack nurse, over the death of Omolayo Afolabi after the former’s unsuccessful attempt to abort the deceased’s pregnancy.
Also arrested along with Adebiyi was the boyfriend of the deceased, Endurance Joseph, who, according to the police, was responsible for the pregnancy.
According to the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr Wole Ogodo, the incident occurred last Sunday at College Street in Iju town, Akure North Local Government Area.
Ogodo said on Tuesday that the case had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigative Department for further investigation, while the corpse had been deposited at General Hospital Iju for autopsy.
A source in the town narrated that the boyfriend of the deceased approached the alleged quack medical practitioner to assist them in terminating the pregnancy.
Adebiyi was alleged to have granted the request of her customers and thereafter administered some drugs on the deceased which was said to have caused complications inside her stomach and consequently killed her.
Ogodo said Adebiyi and the boyfriend of the deceased would soon be charged to court.
