A bereaved man in Delta State, Mr Godson Egede have sued Eku Baptist/General Hospital, Delta state government, MD, Eku Baptist/General Hospital, Dr Totibo among others over the death of his wife.
According to information gathered by Igbere TV on the matter, Mr Godson Egede accused Dr. Ebom Totibo of allegedly leaving cotton wool in his wife’s abdomen after surgery which led to her death.
He further stated that, the medical team re-arranged her intestines, explaining the issues as discovered by the team as “attempted appendectomy”.
Mr Egede stated that after the operation his wife was wheeled to the private ward for close observation, noting that instead of improving, she started rapid deterioration, as her abdomen began to swell, and she could not gas or stool for over 14 days.
“One of the medical doctors on duty recommended that an MRI scan be conducted on her to clearly ascertain the position of the surgical operation conducted on her.
“They also recommended an MRI scan which was conducted on her at Lily Hospital Benin City, Edo State, and the result analysed by a plethora of specialists, showed that Dr. Ebom Totibo and his team left a huge cotton wool on my wife’s abdomen after the surgical operation, which has led to her death” he added
He said the family had already petitioned the hospital over negligence of duty, noting that he met with Delta State Hospital Management Board on Thursday, July 20, 2023, over his petition.
