Nurse arrested for injecting Mohbad not registered — Lagos NANNM

The Lagos State Council of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) has clarified that the individual arrested for injecting the late Nigerian rapper Mohbad, whose real name was Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, was not a registered nurse. In a press statement, the association expressed its condolences to the family and associates of the late musician and supported the ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death.

The NANNM emphasized the importance of professionalism in reporting and conducting investigations, stating that preliminary investigations indicated that the individual taken into custody by the police for providing care to Mohbad was not a registered nurse. The association clarified that in Nigeria, to be recognized as a nurse, one must complete a rigorous five-year Bachelor of Nursing Science program at a university or undergo training at an accredited School/College of Nursing and become registered and licensed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria.

The statement also noted that the term “Auxiliary Nurse” has no place within Nigeria’s healthcare system or laws, and individuals are either qualified nurses or unqualified individuals performing tasks beyond their competence.

The NANNM called on investigating authorities and the media to exercise caution and accuracy in their reporting during the investigation and demanded that media outlets that inaccurately reported the arrest of a nurse take immediate corrective action to rectify their stories.
