Nigerian Doctor arrested in UK for having hot $3x with patient in toilet

Medical authorities in the United Kingdom (UK) have suspended a Nigerian doctor, Ewere Onyekpe, for having a $3*ual relationship with a patient including in a hospital’s toilet.

The Medical Practitioners Tribunal of the General Medical Council (MPT of the GMC) – a medical regulatory body in the UK – had in January imposed a sanction of six months on Mr Onyekpe’s practising licence, after he was found guilty by an investigative tribunal that looked into the matter.

The tribunal’s verdict, which took effect in February, was due for review six months later.

But before the case was due for review, a UK independent body that focuses on ethics and standards – Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA) – appealed against the MPT’s decision.

PSA said it found the punishment too lenient on some grounds and challenged MPT’s decision before a UK law court.

The court found PSA’s argument logical and ordered MPT to stage a retrial of the matter, taking into consideration one of the grounds of appeal.
