A Consultant and Medical Superintendent, Psychiatric Hospital, Eket, identified as Dr. Nwaopara A.U, has been sacked by the Akwa Ibom Government, for allegedly stealing six hospital beds and converting them to personal use.
According to NAN, the state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Dominic Ukpong, made the disclosure while addressing the management and staff of the hospital in Eket on Friday.
He alleged that the doctor stole the beds in October, 2017, and converted them to use in his private hospital in Marina area of Eket. But Dr Nwaopara told TheNation that the matter was in court.
“We have terminated the appointment of the doctor who stole the beds in the psychiatric hospital and converted them to personal use. We will not condone such attitude from any doctor. I want to thank the management of the hospital for their cooperation during the investigations,” Ukpong said.
