A 31 year old pregnant lady, Martha Ipopo has died from a Caesarean section delivery said to be as a result of a clinic (name withheld) negligence in Sapele, Delta State.
The lady who was said to have been brought to the hospital on the night of Thursday, May 16, 2019, was said to be undergoing C&S during delivery when the generator supplying power suddenly broke down.
“When the generator broke down, the hospital staff and nurses were running up and down and there was no replacement” a source who claim to be related to Martha but craved anonymity told Advocate “and my sister has lost lot of blood, I think that led to her death, which is very painful. I am demanding for an investigation into her death, I have lost a sister”
Martha’s Church Pastor, and members were said to have stormed the hospital, praying for her recovery “but Martha was gone, I just wonder when Nigerian doctors will stop using their negligence to kill our citizens” the source cried
When our reporters visited the clinic situated at the outskirt of town, the only doctor on duty refused to speak to the press “Pls I have nothing to say, if possible, speak to the Medical Director”
The Medical Director would not pick his calls as at press time.
