Senator Jim Nwobodo yesterday narrated how his son, Dr. Ifeanyichukwu Nwobodo jnr died following the alleged negligence of a doctor.

Reports says that Nwobodo said his son was cured at the Anderson Medical Cancer Centre in Houston, Texas, United States. That Ifeanyichukwu was asked to stay longer in the U.S. but he wanted to return because he was feeling homesick.

The former governor of the old Anambra State said his son developed pains in the legs and he was taken to a consultant oncologist at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH), Enugu. He added that the doctor, instead of taking him to the teaching hospital, which had facilities for emergency, referred his son to his private clinic. According to Nwobodo, the injection administered on his son led to complications.

The senator spoke yesterday when Abia State Governor Theodore Orji  visited him in Enugu. Nwobodo said the doctor tried to rush his son to Niger Foundation Hospital, but he died on the way. He said:

   
Quote
“My son was ill for five months before I knew about it and we were planning to go to India before we took him to the U.S. He was given a visa for two years because the cancer was at stage four, but they treated him. When he came back, his leg started to swell and he thought he should see a doctor and I advised him to see the best oncologist. It took us three weeks to see the doctor.

    Ön Friday – I was speaking with him three times a day – and he was to see the doctor by 5pm and between 5:30 and 6pm, I called him and he said he was with the doctor. I requested to speak with the doctor but he said he was busy but instead of the doctor taking him to UNTH, he took him to his private clinic, where he had no equipment, no facility at all. I called him again and when I didn’t hear from him I sent him text and I asked the doctor to tell me why he gave my son injection that made him unconscious, he said he was sorry and that he was trying to resuscitate him.

    I spoke with him by 6:30pm and by 7 pm he was dead. It is painful because this is something that would have been averted and I can’t understand why a dean of Department of Medicine should leave the hospital where he has all the equipment to go to his private clinic and I believe that is how some other people die.”

The doctor kept him in his hospital to have a closer observation. At stage four, cancer cases are metastatic and cannot be cured by anybody, no matter the hospital in the world except is heaven made. Oga Jim take heart but free the doctor abeg.

The Doctor did not do well at all but then at the stage 4 of cancer, only God saves, not Doctor, not any man. RIP Ifeanyi

Though sorry for the lost, but his father is more greedier than the Dr. When he was a governor what did he do, when he was a minister the best he could do was to carry an existing generator to his village, this same fate will befall all the wicked leaders that fails to do the right thing!
