“How FMC Doctor Killed My Son” – Grieving Mother Recounts
A grieving mother identified as Mrs Joseph Mbonu has recounted how a female doctor at FMC Yenagoa killed her baby.
According to the woman, a female doctor injected her 9-months old with an overdose of a supposed medicine meant to cure him.
”I took my son to the hospital because he was not looking well to me. After tests were conducted, a female doctor looked at the results and began to administer drugs on my son. She shook bottle filled with liquid, which she had dropped a tablet.
I was curious and was watching what she was doing when a doctor standing close to her told her she should have divided the drugs into two equal halves before mixing. The doctor said that the single tablet would have been too much for my son. But she told the doctor that according to test results, the dose was appropriate for my baby.
She wanted to inject my baby with it. When I also made attempts to stop her, she yelled, asking if I wanted to teach her how to do her job.
I reluctantly allowed her to inject my baby. Soon after my baby was injected, he started vomiting profusely. It was then I started shouting for help, but it was too late. At that point, the doctor sneaked out of the ward, and left my baby to die in my arms.
The child’s parents are now calling for justice saying;
We want justice for our son. We made a promise to him that we would use his death to fight for other innocent children, who are dying in that hospital
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Asinim Butswat, confirmed the incident adding that police have begun investigations.
New Telegraph also reported that the FMC Public Relations Officer (PRO), Akebi Benard, said; “The management of FMC is not happy about what happened. We’re waiting for the report of the panel so that we can take necessary actions against all those that took part in the death of the baby.”
