Did fake Maryland doctor Charles Akoda deliver your baby or give you medical care? If you were one of his patients, read below for more important information.
A Prince George’s County man has pled guilty to fraudulently using social security numbers to obtain a fake medical license. Oluwafemi Charles Igberase, a/k/a Charles John Nosa Akoda, used several social security numbers and names to get into a U.S. residency program.
“Igberase and the government have agreed that if the Court accepts the plea agreement Igberase will be sentenced to six months in prison, followed by six months of home detention as part of three years of supervised release.” He will be sentenced in early 2018.
A search was completed on his home pursuant to a warrant. Discovered were a U.S. Visa, Nigerian passport, altered birth certificates, altered medical school transcripts and letters of recommendations, and also fraudulent or altered documents pertaining to immigration.
This criminal matter is important in the medical malpractice/personal injury realm due to Igberase/Akoda performing procedures on unsuspecting women throughout Prince George’s County under the guise of him being a professionally trained, licensed obstetrician and gynecologist.
Many local women are concerned that a breach of the standard of care occurred based upon their experiences with this individual.
For more information on the prosecution of Oluwafemi Igberase, see the link for the U.S. Department of Justice.
