Ghana’s Nursing and Midwifery Council has said it is investigating a TikTok user after posting a video on the app allegedly threatening to kill patients.
The TikToker is said to be a nursing student in the country.
In the video, she appeared in a nursing school uniform and claimed “she will kill any client who seeks her service as a nurse because she was forced to pursue nursing against her will”, the council said in a statement.
“Investigations have commenced earnestly to identify the said student and apply the necessary sanctions,” it said.

It said the student made the remarks out of “ignorance” about the nursing profession and urged the public to treat the video with the “contempt it deserves”.
It also warned nursing students against using uniforms for unapproved activities.
