The union said this in a press statement dated September 22, 2023, released via the office ‘Of Toba Odumosu, State Secretary NANNM Lagos State Council, describing the arrested nurse as a “quack.”
On Thursday, it was reported that the Lagos State Police Command arrested the nurse.
A police source told SaharaReporters investigators established that the musician was beaten by the same people who always threatened and harangued him, after a show he had in Ikorodu.
He was said to have sustained injuries following the beating, leading him to seek the services of a nurse at home. It was learnt that Mohbad started convulsing after being given injections, one of which was said to be an anti-tetanus shot.
A tetanus shot is a toxoid vaccine that prevents tetanus, a life-threatening bacterial infection.
Reacting to this, the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) expressed their disappointment on how various media platforms qualified the arrested suspect as a Nurse without investigating her medical expertise.
