One of them, a Batch A Stream 1 corp member, Abraham popularly called
Ab, fainted during a football match, was rushed to a hospital where he
lost his life after the medical doctor on duty allegedly refused to
attend to him.
According to Facebook user, Comr Dokubo, the corp members had gathered
yesterday at the Government Technical College (GTC) field for the
ongoing football tournament which was played by Corp members serving in
Not up to ten minutes in the first half, a Batch A Stream 1 corp member, Abraham popularly called Ab, fainted at the field.
Dokubo’s story continues below:
Ab was rushed to Mercy Clinic Abak, at Mercy Clinic we saw the highest level of man’s inhumanity to man.
When Corp Members arrived luckily we met a doctor he instructed that we
first get the card while others went to get the card we pleaded with the
doctor to run some test the doctor refused before we will say Jack the
doctor have disappeared into thin air.
An elderly woman who was a nurse tried her bit, few minutes later a
Reverend Father came prayed for the boy and personally begged the doctor
for more than 40minutes before the doctor came to see what was going
He injected Ab only God knows what he injected Ab with and instructed that he be transferred to Teaching Hospital Uyo.
Ab had given up the ghost before he arrived Teaching Hospital Uyo.
The question is, if the doctor had attended to our brother, would what is happening to us now happened?
I think the answer is a NO!
Yesterday we met a medical practitioner who has no human sympathy in his world.
We live in a country that has no medical security for her citizens what a shame.
There are so many questions but we leave it to God.
May God grant his family the fortitude to bear the loss. May the Soul of the departed rest in peace, Amen.
