Pastor Oluwatoyin Alli Balogun shared this story with us for you to hear. These are the words from Miss Ifedolapo Oladepo’s sister. The Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) and NYSC need to Investigate this case well:
Her elder sister says,
“You called me five hour to your death and told me to start coming as the NYSC doctors are not doing anything for you. They thought you were pretending you did not want to go for parade so they did not attend to you. When you started calling people from home they eventually gave you an injection. Immediately after the injection you called me again that you notice a lot of rashes on your body that I should speak with the doctor who refused to talk to me. You called five minutes later and told me your tongue is twisting they sent all your friends out after seeng all the reaction on youur body after giving you the unknown injection. You said we should ask for flight and I called immediatel they told me Abuja flight is Mon,wed &Fri. I told you to tell anybody in the clinic that I am a nurse and they should allow me to speak to them.
A male nurse took phone from u and told me u are having anaphylactic reaction and they will watch you for just one our and transfer you to aminu kano teaching hospital but alas they did not transfer you untill 5hours later when they notice you were restless and calling people at home,boarded a bus going to kano with your sister oladepo Kemisola Oladepo to come pick you from there,
I begged them to take you to a teaching hospital around but they took you to General hospital gwazo where they have nothing or little care to render. They took your phone from you claiming you were not resting, from that 5’pm I could not talk to you.
I took a 16 hour journey to make sure I get to you, but I was called around 3am that you had given up,without any doctor in the hospital to assist you the only nurse on duty told me she tried her best,her best of staying beside you when death was taking you away because there was notin to use. From that 3am, till I got to kano, I was hoping it will only be a mix up somewhere and it can’t be you. I got to kano and met you at aminu kano mortuary, alas it was you that was being put in that cold place .Amokkkkkeeeeeeeeee Mi you couldn’t withstand the agony, NYSC has successfully cut your destiny due to negligence”
We are hopeful that NYSC will investigate this matter and bring justice and closure to the affected families.
