The suspended Chairman of Kano Public Complaints and Anti- Corruption Commission, Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado has threaten to drag his Medical Doctor, Bayo Ayodele to court over fake medical reports he provided from the National Hospital Abuja.
Solacebase reports that Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado had submitted a medical report and a letter to the Kano State House of Assembly as reasons for not being able to honour an invitation by the house on July, 14th, 2021, over a petition against him.
However, the assembly wrote to the National Hospital, Abuja to confirm the medical report submitted.
In the reply by the National Hospital Abuja dated July 19th, 2021, with reference number, NHA/CMAC/GC/0117/2021/V.I/01 and signed by Director Clinical Services, Dr A. A Umar said its investigation of the documents indicated that they were forged.
Miffed with this, Muhuyi’s Counsel, Messer Adesina Oke and Associates wrote to the Medical Doctor, Bayo Ayodele, dated July, 23rd, 2021, demanding clarification with the letter of the National Hospital to Kano State House of Assembly.
According to a copy of the letter signed by Barr. S.O Omekedo and cited by Solacebase on Friday, said ’’ it is instruction of our client that you are a medical practitioner and works with the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) Staff Clinic Mahushi, Abuja and that he commissioned and retained your services sometime in May 2021, in your clinic, National Commission for Colleges of Education INCCEJ Staff Clinic. Mabushi, Abuja for a fee to act as his personal Physician when he fell ill.
The letter said it is also as you requested which is customary, for a number test to be carried out on him, after the physical preliminary observation, you personally took/ collected his blood, urine, stool and sputum which test were to be carried out in your place of work, while you further refer him to Life Bridge Diagnostic Centre, located at No 15A Yawun street, Abuja for further test.
Similarly, the letter read, ‘’It is the position of our client that you later delivered to him a medical report dated 7th July, 2021. Personally signed by you from the National Hospital Abuja and on which basis you placed our client on medication and thereafter collected other samples of his blood, urine, stool and sputum for further test which is now contained in the medical report from the same National Hospital Abuja, dated 12 July, 2021.
‘’It is further the instruction of our client that while he was on medication albeit bed rest on your instruction which presumably has its root on the various test and the need for him to get well , he was unable to honour the invitation from the Kano State House of Assembly to appear before it and he relied on the two medical reports from the National Hospital Abuja and prescription thereof but was shocked to see news reports purportedly issued by the National Hospital Abuja in some national dallies (newspapers) alleging that the medical reports are fake. All the documents herein referred to are hereby attached for your necessary action.
It added that ‘’arising from the foregoing, we have the Instructions of our client to make the following urgent demands:
- That you respond to the veracity or otherwise of the news reports as same is capable of directing the minds of the Honorable Members of the Kano State House Assembly on the true state of affairs in respect of my health.
