A 30-year-old fake chemist, Godswill Umoren, has allegedly injected a pregnant woman to death in an attempt to help her abort her unborn child.
Umoren who claimed to be a chemist said he administered the injection under the orders of the deceased’s husband, Sunday Udofia.
He said: “I was the one that gave her the injection. Her husband called me to his house to examine his sick wife. I asked her what happened, she said that she was having body pain and they bought medicine for her. When I gave her the injection initially, she did not die."
“I am not a medical personnel, I learnt how to administer medicine and inject patients from my brother who is a doctor. I only helped her to recover.”
Cross River state commissioner of police, Hafiz Inuwa, while confirming the incident, said the accused person confessed to the crime. He explained that Umoren administered the injection to terminate the unborn child of the deceased.
