A medical doctor, Philips Duru has been arraigned before a Yola Chief Magistrate for allegedly raping a married woman.
The doctor allegedly raped the woman in his private hospital in the course of medical checks. The doctor also works at the Adamawa State Specialist Hospital, Yola.
Dr Phillips Duru, was arraigned before a magistrate court on Thursday, with the police prosecution specifying that the doctor perpetuated the act in the lab of his private clinic located near the state Specialist Hospital.
The Magistrate of the court, Aliyu Bawuro, however adjourned the case to November 26.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Sulaiman Nguroje, stated that the plaintiff had reported the alleged rape, prompting them to take up the case.
“It’s true. The matter was reported to the police through a complaint by the victim who said she and her husband visited the Specialist Hospital and met the doctor over a health challenge,” Nguroje said.
He added that the man was invited and then charged to court after due investigation.
