For Real? My Wife died because her Jehovah Witness family rejected blood transfusion – Husband

Wonders shall never end! One Mr. Emmanuel Timothy has accused his wife’s of being responsible for his wife’s death.
The late Mrs Grace Emmanuel died on Monday after rejecting blood transfusion at the National Hospital in Abuja.
Dailypost reports that the aggrieved husband in an interview disclosed that his wife died “because her Jehovah Witness family rejected blood transfusion…they refused to consent to her having a blood transfusion.”
According to Timothy, his wife after having had a complicated miscarriage was made to undergo a surgery which further resulted into complications.
He said “When she complained of serious stomach ache, we rushed her to the National Hospital where the doctor said her stomach had to be flushed. But, before the flushing, they said she needed blood transfusion because she had already lost such much blood. However, she did not get the blood transfusion because her religion and family forbid blood transfusion. Over our dead body, it is better she dies than for her to take another person’s blood, they said to me.”
Timothy Emmanuel stated that he would be pressing charges against his late wife’s family.
“I have to press charges because they prevented my wife from receiving blood transfusion.
Until her death, the late Mrs Emmanuel was a police corporal assigned to the Wuse Zone 3 Police Division, Abuja. Nawa oh!
