Her son, Jeremy Onome Akpobome,  in an exclusive chat with NET said the death of his mother remains a mystery because she was ok up until when she began to complain of chest pains and general body weakness.

“On Saturday, we went to the beach for my uncle’s birthday. Nothing went wrong until about 2 a.m when she woke us up to change over because PHCN had brought the light, she then went upstairs and started complaining of chest pain. At this point, she started breathing awkwardly. Her elder sister who is a nurse attended to her and gave her first aid but her breathing was still laboured so we decided to take her to the hospital.

“First, we went to Blue Cross Hospital at Ogba but the staff we saw were unresponsive. I was shocked to see their unconcerned countenance. When we saw that they were not ready to help us so we left and drove to County Hospital. A doctor saw her there, checked her pulse and said she was still breathing but that they had no facilities to treat her. So he referred us to Lagos University Teaching Hospital in Ikeja,”.

According to him, when they finally got to LUTH, the staff of the hospital were of no help as they wasted 40 minutes before they finally decided to treat her.

“She had stopped breathing. The pain is worse for me because none of the three hospitals treated the case as an emergency. In fact, I have given up on Nigeria because they all had up to three hours to save my mum, how can over three hospitals in Lagos not have the right facility to treat breathing problems?- None of them even had a stretcher, I am just totally done with this country,” he said.

  1. I gave up on Nigeria long ago. yes I did after losing 3 family members because those moronic doctors want police evidence

  2. Tell me about this country, our health care is terrible. I just lost a cousin Because doctors at Bambi hospital in Benin city could not help her
    She was bleeding hours after she gave birth. They told her husband to take her to UBTH Because they cant save her. Her husband had to transport his wife to another hospital but she passed immediately they arrived UBTH, leaving behind a 7 yr old son and a day old baby. They have caused pain to this family
