Engineer Shot By Robbers In Ogun State Dies After Hospital Rejected Him Over Missing Police Report


engineer shot by robbers ogun state

By Punch Metro

Tragedy struck on Madam Felicia Street, Orimerunmu, Ofada-Mokoloki, in the Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State, after a senior engineer with an Information and Communications Technology company, Adebayo Akinwunmi, was shot dead by suspected robbers.

We learnt that the victim was killed around 1am on Sunday, May 13, when the four-man gang attacked the community.

An eyewitness, who did not want to be identified for security reasons, said the men scaled the fence into the engineer’s house.

He said, “They were four in number and did not wear any mask. The man’s wife was sleeping when they shouted through the window that the family should open the door. They showed their guns and threatened to shoot.

“The man asked the wife to stay in the bedroom and assured the robbers that he would open the door. He was about to open the door when the men, who had become impatient, broke the door with their legs.

“As they were querying the man for being sluggish, the wife came out and started begging them.

“They asked the wife what they had and she gave them their ATM cards, phones and laptops.

“One of them just shot the engineer in the rib. Others queried the man for shooting him and they hurriedly left the apartment.

“They led the wife out and asked her to open the gate and find someone that would take the husband to a hospital. They asked her not to shout.”

Our correspondent learnt that the wife contacted the sister-in-law, who got a vehicle with which the victim was taken to a private medical facility in the area.

He was reportedly rejected as the doctors allegedly demanded a police report for the gunshot injuries.

We gathered that the wife asked that he should be taken to Reddington Hospital, Ikeja, the hospital that his company used. However, he was again rejected at the hospital.

A close family member said doctors at the hospital also demanded a police report.

“We were finally referred to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, where we were told that there was no surgeon to attend to him due to the ongoing strike actions of medical doctors in the country.

“Because there was nobody to attend to us, he gave up at LASUTH. He would have marked his 41 years birthday on May 29, 2018.

“This is the fifth time that the robbers would attack their house. The previous times, the robbers burgled the house when they were not at home. This was the only time they met them at home,” she added.

We learnt that the Abeokuta, Ogun State indigene, and his wife, Nike, had been married for 10 years.

He was said to have been survived by an aged mother, wife and two children.

    What a catastrophic country Nigeria is! The primary responsibility of doctors is to save and preserve lives. What has police report got to do with a dying man? Are we sane in that country??? Even in America, police incident reports are not available until 24 hours after an incident or accident. How can doctors stand by and watch patients die without any repercussions? In civilized countries (no wonder we are so backward and called third world and shithole), the doctors will lose their license and people will abandon the hospital until they are forced to shut down. Why do we delight in wasting lives? Thank God for the grace of exposure to civilization and living in a country where lives are valued, no matter what. My daughter’s dog had emergency surgery on her spine last summer and was hospitalized for three days for observation and recovery. Meanwhile, we waste human lives in Nigeria. God have mercy on his family and sustain them in this difficult time. Please abolish your useless laws or vote out your unconscionable leaders who travel overseas for medical treatment. Awon oloriburuku. God waste our wasters, amen.

      Lola O please, stop comparing Western Countries with our Country. Is just comparing sane with insane. According to one of my boss at work, he told me one day that our country may not experience any good change. I asked him why? he said because of black mentality and selfishness in us. I couldn’t continuing arguing with him because they read everything in the newspaper and they listen to the news. We black people have no better agenda for ourselves. We love to oppress each other. We only think about ourselves, we don’t care if others are staving to death. White people agenda is opposite.

      I never knew this man read a lot of African history book. He said in the old days our traditional chiefs were the ones benefitting from farm produce. They brought all these foods to the king and his chiefs while those working at the farm were starving. Honestly this is absolutely truth. The foundation of America was not like that. They believe everybody should have equal right and have access to the same opportunities rich people have. In 1938 late President Roosevelt of United State came up with the idea that no household should go hungry while some people have more than enough and thus created social security. That idea has benefited millions of American till today. Lola you are comfortable in the US where you are residing now because of the system they have in place. This system was not design for black people but some wise black people took that advantage to better themselves.

      There is something about we black race, no matter where they place us, we destroy that place. We cannot feed ourselves, we cannot govern ourselves and we derive so much in criminality. Now, tell me how we can rub shoulder to shoulder to our white counterparts in terms of innovations. Some ignorant are saying we have crude oil and that is what white people are looking for. Folks, the era of oil boom is coming to an end soon because of other technology emerging. Then what are we going to depend upon?. White people knew we have oil in 1960 before they gave us independent contrary to what other people were saying that if they had known we have oil, they might not have given us our independence. That is not true. The British gave us independence because they knew we are going to fail. Even with our resources are we not running to them for loan and financial assistance?

    By continuously robbing these people uninterrupted for five consecutively times means there is an insider who gave that man to the robbers. The most unfortunate part of it is, that informant may be his cousin. Do not trust anybody. May God saves us from enemy within.
