#JusticeforChisom MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF A YOUNG MOM AT MAGODO SPECIALIST HOSPITAL, FAMILY DEMANDS JUSTICE
The family of late Chisom Jane Anekwe (nee Okereke) and LEAP Africa Alumni are demanding for justice following her painful death at the Magodo Specialist Hospital.
On April 30th 2017, Chisom Anekwe nee Okereke died under questionable circumstances at Magodo Specialist Hospital while trying to birth her third child.
She had been diagnosed of high blood pressure and was admitted four days before labour.
While at the hospital, no one attended to her. She was left for hours in labour until her husband caused a scene, which eventually led the doctors to go to her ward. Upon inspection they found out that the baby had struggled and died.
The husband at this point requested for a CS which he paid for and even signed the consent form presented by the hospital. He was asked to go prepare for blood transfusion and on getting back, he found out that the doctors had induced the wife and delivered the dead baby without operation.
During the process of delivering the baby, the uterus got ruptured.
Late Chisom with her beautiful daughters, who will look after them?
Shortly after, the husband noticed her stomach was swelling and called the attention of the doctors who said they were getting ready for a surgery.
After waiting in vain for the surgical team, the frustrated husband went furiously to the reception to demand why they were wasting time only to discover the doctor had sneaked out of the hospital under funny pretences. At this point, while trying to get hospital staff to wheel her out of the Hospital, Chisom died!
This is the story of most young women who die while giving birth as a result of the callousness and ignorance of inexperienced and irresponsible doctors. In this era, we shouldn't be talking about Child and Maternal Mortality when it can be avoided. Chisom Jane Anekwe, mother of two is now another Statistic.
We demand that Magodo Specialist Hospital, Shangisha, Lagos, be investigated for their Actions. We demand justice for Chisom Okereke Anekwe.
