The Ondo state government has shut down an illegal hospital in Okitipupa, Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state.
The Permanent Secretary of  the state  Ministry of Health, Dr Dipo Durojaye, said the hospital was training about 52 auxiliary nurses which is against the law of the state.
He also stated that the hospital was not registered under the State Ministry of health and ran medical services without following the laid down rules.
The permanent secretary said the government was ready to sanction anyone opening hospitals without license.

Durojaye added that private health facility training unqualified practitioners will be queried as the government will not endanger the life of any citizen.
He also warned medicine stores that operate as hospitals to desist from such act or come under the judgement of the law.
The Director of Hospital Services, Dr Richard Adesoji, reiterated the facts that quacks are dangerous to the health sector because they are not properly trained.
He added that, despite the numerous effects quacks have on the people, they still ignorantly go to them for treatment.
He encouraged hospitals that are unable to employ qualified nurses to liaise with Community Health Extension Workers (CHEWS) as discussed at the National Council on Health.
The Director Nursing Services of the ministry, Mrs Alice Ogundele, added that it is overwhelming that some hospitals in that locality have more than 50 nurses in training, when some accredited Schools of Nursing and Midwifery were to admit 50 or less only.
Ogundele said this is harmful to the nursing profession as qualified nurses will be denied job opportunities.
