Just 24 hours after a mum of four, Chibuzoe died in their home in ajao Estate, Isolo, Lagos, her husband has followed suit
Punch newspaper reports that Chibuzor, whose 14-year-old son, Uche, said was a little above 30 years, died at their residence, No. 2 Raji Aliu Street, off the Airport Road, Ajao Estate, last Wednesday.
According to Uche, his mother had been complaining of general weakness of the body for some days and the family thought that it was a minor thing.
He added that Chibuzor started excreting loose stool and vomiting and it was at this point that they realised it could be something serious.
Uche stated that his father, Isiaka Balogun, aka Gaddafi, rushed his mother to a clinic, where she was placed on certain medication and she was discharged later.
He said when they got back home, her condition worsened, noting that before they could get a vehicle to convey her to hospital, she died.
The teenager stated, “She told me that she was vomiting in the morning after I left for school. When I returned from school in the afternoon, I met her in bed; she looked pale. She told me that she had been excreting loose stool and vomiting. I asked my dad to take her to hospital. And when he took her to hospital, they gave her an injection and he brought her back home.
“She was still experiencing pains as was excreting and vomiting after returning from the hospital. I had to get her 7Up and added some salt to it and gave her to drink to see if it could give her strength since the doctor said it was cholera.
“My dad had to take her to the same hospital but they rejected her. We had to rush her to the General Hospital, Isolo, and when we got there, the doctor examined her and told us that she couldn’t make it. One of our family friends and I had to return home, leaving my father behind.”
Uche added that in the afternoon, he received a call concerning his father’s health and he and some of relatives and friends quickly went to the hospital.
He said they tried to ensure that Isiaka was admitted to the general hospital, but he was rejected by doctors and nurses there.
