Medical Council disowns 'Dr. Uche-Ayodeji' who claimed to be killing Muslim patients

The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) on Monday disowned one Christopher Uche-Ayodeji who claimed he allowed Muslim patients die deliberately under his care as a doctor.
Following the burning to death of Deborah Samuel by Muslim extremists at the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, last Thursday, Uche-Ayodeji, who goes by the name Dr. Chris claimed to be on a revenge mission at one time by deliberately allowing Northern Muslim patients die under his care as a doctor.
The “doctor” said he now works at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust. The hospital has since denounced him and that he had never been their staff.
However, the MDCN, in a disclaimer, said its attention had been drawn to a viral comment on social media by one Christopher Uche-Ayodeji (Dr. Chris) who claimed he was on a revenge mission at one time by deliberately allowing Northern Muslim patients die under his care as a doctor.
“We have painstakingly gone through our registers (Provisional registration, full registration, alternative medicine registration), his name does not exist on any of our registers.
“We can, therefore, say categorically that he is not a doctor. His claims are spurious and should be handed over to law enforcement agencies as a common criminal,” the council said.
It added that “If his claim of being in the UK is true, the Interpol should be alerted.
“As a regulatory body, Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) will continue to regulate the practice of Medicine, Dentistry and Alternative Medicine in the most efficient manner that safeguards best healthcare delivery for Nigerians irrespective of their ethnicity, religion or social class.”
