CHEMIST LANDS IN PRISON FOR PERFORMING ABORTION WHICH LED TO PATIENT’S DEATH

 

 

An Ado-Ekiti Magistrates’ Court on Monday remanded a 40-year-old chemist, Folake Oluwafemi, who allegedly performed an abortion that led to death.

The defendant, whose address was not provided, was charged with manslaughter before Magistrate Omolola Akosile.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Monica Ikebuilo, told the court that Oluwafemi carried out an abortion on one Miss Oluwabukola Adeosun and it caused her death.

Ikebuilo said that the defendant committed the offence on February 20, at Ijero-Ekiti, Ekiti State.

According to the prosecutor, the abortion resulted in complications, and Adeosun was taken to a hospital, where she died.

The prosecutor noted that manslaughter contravened Section 325 of the Criminal  Code, Laws of Ekiti, 2012.

 

The court did not take the plea of the defendant, as the magistrate ordered that the case file should be duplicated and sent to the state director of public prosecutions for advice.

Akosile ordered that the accused should be kept in prison, and adjourned the case until April 4 for mention.
