|Man Dies After An Injection by utimayor(m): 2:40pm On Oct 12, 2012|
Barely six months after a man died after receiving injection from a patent medicine dealer in Amangballa area of Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, another man has fallen victim in like manner
The incident which occurred in Ukpa area sent cold shivers down the spines of the people and neighbour. Orient Daily learnt that one Chukwu Ehia slumped and died after receiving an injection from a nurse. He was buried immediately after consultations with the police.
An inside family source told Orient Daily that late Chukwu Ehia had a motorcycle accident on September 2 and was admitted at Afikpo Medical Centre (AMC) the same day.
He was discharged the next day and was going to the hospital every 2 days for dressing the wound he sustained on his leg. But on September 23, Chukwu 40, died after being given injection by a nurse, one Bridget Ewa who works at the hospital. He died, leaving his 7-month pregnant wife 35, and 4 children, the eldest being 9 years.
An inside family source said Nurse Bridget Ewa deceived the man only to kill him the next day. According to the source, Bridget advised the man to allow her treat him privately.
She promised him that she will give him one dose of injection that will heal the wound within one week. But when the idea was raised, his wife did not accept that but when the nurse insisted promising she will not only administer the proper drug, but will equally reduce cost for them, the man accepted defying his wife’s objection.
The source also told our correspondent that on that fateful day, the nurse came to the man’s house and administered the injection on him. Immediately he was injected he became weak and started losing voice with his eyes dimming.
He collapsed thereafter and was rushed to Mater Hospital where doctor confirmed him dead. But members of the family were shocked that the nurse who accompanied them to the hospital disappeared immediately the man was certified dead. And uptill the time of filing this report, nobody had seen her.
The source further told Orient Daily that the incident had provoked serious questions about the type of injection and the motive of the nurse. While some argued that the nurse may have used wrong or expired drug, others who suggested an ulterior motive of the nurse, said she might have had bad feelings about the man.
