January 6, 2016 – Lagos Hospital Seizes Corpse Of Hit & Run Victim Over Family’s Inability To Pay Bill

Pictured above is the seized corpse of Bashir Makanjuola, a 61-year-old husband of 4 wives and father of 8 children who was crushed to death by a hit and run driver in Oshodi Lagos on the 1st of September 2015 while crossing the road.

The deceased was rushed to LASUTH in Ikeja but was referred to NOHIL (The National Orthopaedic Hospital, Igbobi, Lagos) where he was admitted.

On the 5th of September, 2015 he was moved to the ICU unit where a surgery was carried out to treat the internal wound he sustained.

When his family could not pay for his treatment, the doctors stopped treating him.

He eventually gave up the ghost at the hospital for lack of treatment.

His family members were shocked to hear that they have to pay N471,810 in order to get his corpse.

Late Makanjuola’s corpse is still being held at a morgue in the hospital.

His family has petitioned the Chief Medical Director of the hospital.

    If they had tried thier best perhaps he might not died, the corpse family should let them keep his body, let them eat it if they want that is one thing I love about America, save the life first, then you’ll find the way you pay your hospital bill later if the person doesn’t have medical insurance, and for the fact thet they refuse to perform treatment and the person died, in America your fortune has come because you can sue the hospital, trust me no hospital will try that in America .

    IF NOBODY CAN BAIL HIM OUT,THE HOSPITAL WILL SELL ALL HIS HUMAN PARTS TO THE HERBALIST TO MAKE SPECIAL SOAP FOR ALL THOSE HUSTLERS WHO ARE LOOKING FOR EASY WAY OUT.

    Very easy to say but he who wears the shoe knows where it pinches. No family will leave the corpse of their late family member to a hospital no matter what. I think the family is on the right course by petitioning the chief medical director over the matter.
    But come to think of it, so if one has no money no treatment will be administered? What a shame…. Even in a governmrnt teaching hospitals. Tufia kwa…! What a horrible country.
