I can't count the number of patients I've killed - Fake doctor
Legit.ng gathered that a 42-year-old man confessed to endangering the lives of several people by administering drugs to them by mere guesswork.
The fake doctor identified as John Anopuem, confessed to giving drugs without prescriptions, to patients who may have died as a result.
Admitting that he prescribed the drugs by merely guessing, he also said he couldn't tell the exact number of patients he had catered to, stating that sometimes the drugs worked and other times it may have harmed them.
The Imo-state indigene who ran a drugstore at Seriki Aro street, Ikeja, Lagos, confessed after he was arrested, and some of his drugs were picked as exhibits.

After he was paraded by Imohimi Edgar, the Lagos state commissioner of police, Anopuem said:
“It was a mistake I made and I could not say it was not harmful and I cannot confirm the number of the patients that may have died as a result of wrong prescription of the drugs.”
He begged for forgiveness, stating that he would never do it again if given another chance. The police commissioner however says he will be charged to court upon conclusion of investigations.
