Ebenezer Died Of Gunshot Wound Because Hospitals Demanded Police Report —friends by Le124(m): 11:51am On Jun 11
Friends of a music producer, Ebenezer Ayeni, are inconsolable and grief-stricken at the moment over the tragic death of the about-to-wed vocal instructor in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

The PUNCH gathered that 30-year-old Ayeni was shot by armed robbers who invaded his residence before dawn on Thursday.

According to his friends, the victim was rushed to the University College Hospital, Ibadan, and another private hospital but both medical centres refused to treat him without a police report.

Ayeni was said to have given up the ghost hours later. Photos of the victim in the pool of his blood have since flooded the social media.Also, the friends of the deceased have taken to Facebook to mourn their beloved associate while also condemning the whole system that requires police report to treat a gunshot victim.

A Facebook user, Mc ShayorComedian, wrote, “Ebenezer Ayeni was shot in his residence during the night and he was rushed to UCH but he wasn’t attended to because of police report. He was also rushed to J-Rapha hospital in Ibadan and they also refused to attend to him because of police report.

“He gave up the ghost after struggling with life for more than two hours. We were planning your wedding next week and not your burial. Rest in perfect peace brother!”Adegbite Adedamola wrote, “Ebenezer Ayeni, Rest in Peace brother. Next week Saturday should have been your wedding but who are we to question God? You battled for your life for more than two hours, and UCH was asking for police report without attending to you.”So much to write about you: Ebenezer Ayeni. We still spoke not long and only for me to hear the news of your transition. You planned to visit me on Sunday to tidy (a) few things…What a nation we have found ourselves (in). He could have survived. Imagine, how can a police report carry so much weight than life?” Cylars Omoloye queried.

“I love you forever brother. Rest on. Two hospitals rejected you because they needed police report instead of saving your life first. It is well. What a loss,” David Justice commented.In Nigeria, we blame the government for everything. The nurse or doctor on duty is a human being who has blood running in his or her veins. Whatever the arguments are – government isn’t treating them well or they don’t have enough equipment – how about cases of simple timely care and a little bit of human sympathy? Rest in Peace Eben,” a furious Moninkanola Ogidan wrote.

Efforts to get the comments of the Chief Medical Director of UCH, Prof. Jesse Otegbayo, on the incident proved abortive as his line was switched off as of the time of filing this report.

Also, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Adewale Osifeso, neither picked his calls nor replied to a text message sent to his line by The PUNCH.Many Nigerians had in the past condemned the need to present police reports before hospitals could treat gunshot victims.Earlier in the year, a Systems Engineer and winner of 2018 IBM competition, David Nketim-Rex, died after he was shot by robbers on a motorcycle in the Jibowu area of Lagos State. He was said to have died after he was taken to a hospital but rejected on the grounds that he was a gunshot victim and they couldn’t ascertain whether he was a victim or an armed robber.

May his soul rest in peace.
I think citizens should unite and close down any hospital that does not treat innocent gunshot victims.
As for the armed robbers who also robbed the young man of his life, may their next mission be their last day on earth. amen

This is saddening. Police report over one's life.
What a hell of a country.
Though you may not really blame those doctors, they might have seen or experienced so much from our police because I don't want to believe they would be this inhumane.

Don't know how true sha, I heard from a police officer that hospitals can go ahead with the treatment of gunshot victims without police report, but they shouldn't release them after treatment until police team arrives for investigation

What stops the stupid Nigerian Police Farce from having at least a personnel at each government hospital to supervise such? Although the police was not set up to cater for the citizens in the first place.

Something serious should be done about this demand for police report before treating a fataly wounded victim of gunshots.

Na only this country this kind yeye law dey.

If you feel the injured might be a criminal who was gunned down by State actors during a face off, then, instruct hospitals to treat them and put them in handcuffs pending when police will certify them clean. It will save lives.

I have had the misfortune of moving a gunshot victim round the whole of Lagos at the wee hours of the night. He was shot by traffic robbers at around 8pm. It wasn't until past 12am before I could procure a police report and began the race for a hospital willing to accept him in that state. How he survived is still a miracle till date.

I commiserate with them over the loss.

It's one too much.
