According to a statement released by the Gauteng health department, Lani was nabbed while trying to enter the institution.

Immediately after being apprehended Lani requested to go to the bathroom only to attempt to escape by jumping through the bathroom window.

When the security realised that he was making a run for it, they called for reinforcement, and he was subsequently apprehended again.

Lani who was unmasked as a bogus practitioner had previously told TikTok users that he was a University of Witwatersrand alumni who worked at the health facility.

His claims have since been debunked with the university stating Lani did not graduate from the institution, while the Health Professions Council of South Africa said such a person was not a registered health practitioner.

The infamous personality has since been handed over to the men in blue.
