Meanwhile, a court in Abuja recently sentenced two native doctors to three months imprisonment.

The convicts identified as Musa Ahmadu, 50, and Auwal Idris, 40, who are indigenes of Jahi Village, Abuja, were arrested for selling adulterated drugs.

The Prosecution Counsel, Joshua Ayanna, told the court that the convicts were arraigned on a three-count charge bordering on the joint act, public nuisance, and sale of adulterated native drugs.

Anyanna stated that in August, the convicts were caught dispensing adulterated native drugs in public spaces to Nigerians without authorisation.

During preliminary investigations they told police officers that they were native doctors but could not provide permits to sell such drugs in the public space.

The convicts, pleading guilty to the crime, appealed to the court to tamper judgement with mercy.

Delivering judgment, the Judge, Mohammed Wakili, held that the court convicted and sentenced Ahmadu and Idris based on their plea of guilt.
