Dr. Kalu Nwachukwu is a gynaecologist well-known to his female patients.
Now the 47-year-old is in police custody for the way he allegedly acts with his female patients. He drugs and sleeps with them.
A police statement said the gynaecologist was “in the habit of taking undue advantage of his female patients who come to him for treatment.”
Police said Nwachukwu “confessed to have had sexual affairs with some of his female patients.” They added he confessed the patients were those who came “for treatment or consultation in his office and other locations.”
According to Daily Trust, Nwachukwu is alleged to have used drugs to induce the women in order to have intercourse with them,” said FCT police spokesman Manzah Anjuguri.
The police has warned the public to ensure they “carry out thorough background check on the credibility” of doctors they engage as personal or family physician.
This week, police said a court remanded Nwachukwu at Kuje Prison pending further trial.
A source, refusing to be named, said Nwachukwu’s trouble started among families he helped conceive at his Life Point Medical Centre in Utako.
Suspicions arose after a child conceived and born to one of Nwachukwu’s female patients went through a test that showed the child was not fathered by the patient’s husband.
