Doctor’s negligence led to the death of a corp member in Akwa Ibom

It was the sad end to the life of a Batch A Stream 1 youth corper, Abraham serving in Akwa Ibom State, and this has led to outrage among other corps member. He was said to have collapsed during a football match at the Government Technical College (GTC), in Abak, Akwa Ibom state.

He was later rushed to Mercy Clinic, Abak, but they refused attending to him by, demanding money before treatment. At that point most corpers around had nothing because they were coming from the football field. The doctor on duty rejected all pleas and went back to his office.

An elderly woman who was a nurse tried her bit, few minutes later a Reverend Father came, prayed for Abraham and personally begged the doctor for more than 40 minutes before the doctor came to see what was going on, he injected Abraham and instructed that he be transferred to Teaching Hospital, Uyo. He, however, gave up the ghost before getting there.”
