MY STORY – By the husband of the deceased.

On Monday the 6th of March, my wife who was pregnant went for anti
natal at Federal Medical Center FMC Asaba, and the Doctor who she was
assign to and who has earlier confirm my wife’s Expected Date of
Delivery (EDD) to be 19th March, 2017 discovered her blood pressure BP
was a little above normal, then the doctor said she will be admitted so
they can monitor her BP till the next day. When I came back from site, I
drove to the hospital to pick my wife and she told me her doctor has
said she will be admitted, I requested to see the doctor but to no
avail, so she took me to the nurses who ask if I am the husband and I
said yes,

They brought my wife anti natal file, took us to the pay point
collected ten 10 thousand Naira from me as deposit fee and after she has
paid she took us to the O and G ward were my wife was finally admitted.
I called my in-law who was already in Asaba from Imo state for her
first omukwor to came and stay with her daughter, but my wife objected
that the hospital environment may not be conducive for the mother and
that she will not be permitted to sleep inside the ward. So we stay with
her till 9pm and left as the nurses were beginning to lock the doors.

On Tuesday 7th of March, i ask my inlaw to go and join my wife as I
went to site very early. When I came back around 12noon, I rush to the
hospital to check on my wife, I met my wife passing through a severe
intense pain and her stomach was moving up and down and she was shouting
I ask her what the problem was, and she said she was INDUCED. I didn’t
know what it means to be induced because this is our first pregnancy,
but the agony my wife was going through was beyond normal so I requested
to see the Doctor all effort was futile. I was very angry, why will
they do this to my wife I ask, you told me they were admitting her for
BP. Nurses were complaining that I was disturbing the ward, they also
said my wife will soon deliver. I had some survey plans to produce so I
left to come back later, when I came back in the evening, my wife
couldn’t stand up again from the hospital bed, the pains has increased, I
insisted I was going to talk with her. When she came out, she told me
they INDUCED her the second time. The first INDUCTION failed and the
doctor, Dr. Ojenuwa instructed she should be induced the second time. I
was mad. I looked for the doctor but he was nowhere to be found. All
these were done without my consent; I waited till 10pm if I could see
the doctor but he never showed up so I left.

The next day Wednesday 8th of March, my inlaw called me to come
immediately for my wife have been booked for emergency Cesarean Section,
and that the doctor is requesting for an astral pint of blood, I
quickly made calls to the laboratory department who helped made the
blood available before I arrive the hospital. When I got there, my wife
had already been prepared and place on top of a wheel bed. They asked me
to sign; I read and signed, prayed for my wife with my pastor who
prayed through the phone. For more than 30minute, the nurses kept
jesting and my wife was still in that pain, shouting on top of the wheel
bed. I was worried, then I ask why the delay? No answer. I kept asking
them until one man standing and talking with them got concerned and said
who is woman? This woman’s issue is more critical and urgent than the
person inside the theater. He then instructed that my wife should be
moved into the theater while the person inside should be moved out as
her case is not as serious as my wife, but the nurses refused. He
continued saying that he will not leave a serious and urgent situation
and start to work on an unserious one.

At that point, I notice the person talking is a doctor by name Dr.
Longway, who is working under the supervision of a consultant named Dr.
Maduakor who happens to be our private family doctor, Dr. Maduakor also
knows the history of the pregnancy as we have also been visiting his
private hospital from day one. When I got to know that Dr. Maduakor is
the consultant to supervise the operation from the nurses, I was happy, I
quickly called him to come that my wife is the person they were calling
him for but he never came. After 20 minutes I called him the second
time, he never came. Though finally, Dr. Longway conducted the operation
and it was very successful, I donated two pants of blood as we were
instructed during anti natal orientations. After the surgery, my wife
needed a little medical attention and support, just like every other
woman in her condition, two or three pant of blood which I had earlier
paid for, but was denied her by the wicked Nigeria Doctors and Nurses at
Federal Medical Centre, Asaba. The doctor on duty said they were
waiting for instructions from the higher consultant Dr. Maduakor after
they have informed him of the situation. The higher consultant happens
to be my family doctor but was angry because we didn’t come to his
private hospital for delivery. Yes, because I called him on two
occasions to come help the situation but he never showed up. Therefore,
the instructions never came and the junior doctors and nurses were
watching my wife till she passed on.

Early morning on Thursday, 9th march my wife called me by 4.52am to
come immediately so I can help her, when I got there, she was left alone
as the wicked Nigeria doctors and nurses were all sitting carelessly
watched her struggle with the oxygen that was fixed on her and calling
for help because of her new babies . Her mother was highly restricted
from entering the ward according to FMC Asaba tradition. What is
happening? I shouted, one useless nurse shouted back, are you not the
husband? Go and pay for blood. My wife was shouting, heartbeat please
come and help me with the oxygen she was trying to push into her nose. I
was in the middle of different decision, please put blood, I pleaded,
but they refuse that I should go and pay and bring receipt first.
Quickly rush to pay within 7 to 10minus, only to come and met my wife
lifeless……. So sad! This is after she has delivered a twin; two
beautiful girls the previous day. This is my present predicament. MY
WIFE DID NOT DIE, MY WIFE WAS KILLED by some wicked and heartless humans
who claim to be Doctors and nurses at O and G ward FMC Asaba after I
have paid for everything that was needed. This is our 9th month of
marriage; our wedding was on the 11th June, 2016.
