One of the impersonators who was identified as Nworie Obiageri Juliet* from IVO LGA of Ebonyi state who presented a copy of forged Notification of registration as nurse and a copy of forged Nursing Licence, pleaded for forgiveness and blamed the devil for allowing her perpetrate the criminal act. However, she refused to disclose how,where and who forged the certificate for her.
The other impersonator, who was simply identified as Ada Awolu , from AFIKPO SOUTH L.G.A., a patent medicine vendor, (Chemist) who claimed to have studied at "a College of health Science" in Abia state cried bitterly and pleaded guilty. She however claimed that she was told to apply for the Job meant for qualified Nurses and Midwives by a prominent politician from her area.

Ishiali collectively handed over the impersonators to DSSS for further investigation and possible prosecution.
