According to a statement issued by the Ministry, which was signed by the Attorney General of Kaduna State, Aisha Dikko, the accused has been remanded at the Kaduna Correctional Facility until March 16.
According to the Attorney General, Governor Nasir El Rufai had ordered the Ministry of Health to investigate Saidu, following a petition alleging that the accused had been working with fake certificates.
Consequently, the Ministry of Health set up a four-member committee to investigate and verify the certificates and institutions that Saidu claimed to have attended as well as verify his registration with the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN).
‘’Information gathered from Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria and MDCN also reveals that Saidu was neither admitted nor graduated from the university and was not registered with the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria,” the statement added.
It was, however, opposed by the Director of Public Prosecution.
According to the DPP, the allegations against him are very weighty, and the exceptional circumstances for admitting such offenders to bail have not been complied with, in line with Section 174 of the Kaduna State Administration of Justice Law 2017.
