The National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives, Lagos State Council, has said that the lady who allegedly injected late singer, Mohbad with a substance is not a registered nurse.
According to Vanguard, the Association, made this known in a statement released on Saturday.
It said the association expressed its condolences to the Aloba family but chided media reports over the injection by nurses noting that there is a need for professionalism in reporting and conducting the ongoing investigation into the circumstance
“We must stress the importance of professionalism in reporting and conducting this investigation. NANNM is closely monitoring the situation with keen interest. Our preliminary investigations indicate that the individual reportedly taken into custody by the police for providing care to Mohbad is not a registered Nurse,” it said.
“We emphasise the critical need to verify the qualifications and professional status of individuals before labelling them as healthcare professionals.
“In Nigeria, to be recognised as a Nurse, one must complete a rigorous five-year Bachelor of Nursing Science program at a university, followed by an additional year of internship. Alternatively, one can undergo training at an accredited School/College of Nursing and become registered and licensed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria,” the association added.
