  1. The doctor was charged due to the influence of the victims parent! What an unprofessional approach by the medical doctor to modern treatment.

  2. How much does it cost to get a pop scissor or pop cutter or better still employer a trained orthopaedic cast technologist to be doing that for him. This is the problem with these doctors, they want to be doing everything involved in healthcare while there are other allied health professionals trained to do that. Hope he will learn from this and act observe professionalism in his practice.

  3. So patients can lie like this??? My God! I have been following this case and pictures taken at the hospital and 3days after leaving the hospital showed no such injuries. They discharged themselves against medical advice and went to a cheap hospital in Lagos where he was cut for no reason. Pls give us more facts.
