The suspects were arrested and they confessed to the crime.

An investigation by the police revealed the fake doctor had allegedly been administering injections to pregnant women with tragic consequences.

The suspect, 18-year-old Yusuf Haruna, otherwise known as Lagwatsani, reportedly stabbed the Imam, Malam Sani Mohammed Shuaibu, with a sharp knife at his back while performing ablution.
