In a bizarre story that has continued to baffle investigators and residents of a Lagos community, three generations of a family have died during the delivery of a baby. It was gathered that on May 7, 2015 Dr. Bosun Owolabi, was called when 34-year-old Edith Ororobi, went into labour to give birth to her first child.
Police sources said that Owolabi instantly fled the scene only to contact a relation of the victims on the phone and explained how the grandmother had died of shock after her daughter and newborn grand baby had died. The man, who was contacted was Elizabeth’s younger brother, Jite Tubman.
“The doctor said my elder sister died of shock after realising that her daughter, Edith, had died during delivery.“The father of the dead newborn baby, has travelled out of the country. I later reported the case to the police, who took an ambulance and followed us to the house.”
“The mother was found in a pool of her own blood while the baby was found dead on a bed. The grandmother was also found on the floor lying on her right side. We are still searching for the doctor. The family has even refused to come forward after reporting the case,” a police source said.
“I don’t want to say what I did not do,” he said.
“I am not on the run. That is a lie. I was never arrested and I am not aware that the case is now at Panti (DCI). I cannot say anything further.”
