According to reports, Adegbenro allegedly forged a Bachelor of Nursing degree from the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho, a National Youth Service Corps discharge certificate, a registered nurse certificate from the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria, and a practising licence to get the job.
The Chairman of the NANNM, Lagos State, Olurotimi Awojide, who confirmed the incident, said his attention was drawn to the incident after verification officers discovered the fraud.
He said, “About two weeks ago, we started our verification of practising licence in all our hospitals and the major reason was that we wanted to know those who had yet to renew their licence and that was when someone saw the licence and saw that it was different and not like others.
“Our attention was brought to it and as the chairman of the association, the licencewas forwarded to me for scrutiny and I also confirmed that it was fake.

“I went to meet her to answer questions and get her documents. We invited policemen, who arrested her and took her to a police station. She did not deny any of the allegations; she confirmed that all the certificates with her were fake and the person that helped her to produce them was based in Ibadan.”
The matter was said to have been reported at the Lions Building Police Station.
The Director of Nursing Services, Lagos State Health Service Commission, Olaide Animashaun, confirmed the arrest of the suspect, but declined to comment on the matter.
Ex-housemate of Big Brother Naija reality show, Yerins Abraham takes a swipe at troll who ridiculed him for preaching against toxicity.
Yerins had taken to Twitter to encourage a positive attitude to BBNaija housemates on grounds that the show is concluded and how love should lead henceforth.
“Nawa o, #BBNaija has ended but some motivational speakers still want us to show toxicity and enmity outside the house The one on screen wasn’t enough? Please Love and Friendship covers all. Never sacrifice good relationship for anything,” he wrote.
In response, a troll wrote, “You still get mouth to talk, you that look like fowl that is sick in bbnaija house.”
As a way of leading by example after preaching against toxicity, Yerins offered the troll the knowledge of fluency in the English language.
