Newborn Twins Burnt To Death In Lagos Hospital by CSNg: 7:11am On Dec 03, 2023
A set of twins aged only five days were tragically burnt to death at General Hospital, Ikorodu, Lagos, allegedly due to negligence by the medical staff.

Mrs. Abigail Bankole (alias Iya Ibeji) gave birth to Taiwo (a boy) and Kehinde (a girl) at General Hospital, Ikorodu, on October 3, 2023 and took them home upon their discharge four days later.

However, she took them back to the hospital the next day upon discovering that the babies had jaundice.

“Upon test and confirmation of the suspected jaundice, the doctor recommended the babies be placed under the blue light for correction and treatment while they still await further inquiries from the laboratory.

“Before the babies were taken into the blue light, the mother was asked to feed the babies which she did and the babies were doing very well before they were taken into the blue light.

After about an hour, one of the nurses on duty came to increase the light and left, but the mother of the babies felt, at the level of the room temperature, the light was too high and she immediately called the attention of the nurses, but the nurses vehemently declined the call and told her it was their job and they know what they were doing.

The mother went again about eight times to call the nurses and they still ignored her, they later called her insane and told her, she was not okay as she aggressively raised the alarm and as a result, she started bleeding from the spot where she had the C-section of the babies due due to the heat from the blue light room while she stood to watch the babies.

“All the while she kept calling on the nurses, the babies were crying and Kehinde was already bringing out foam from her mouth while she painfully watched the babies and she and another family member that was by the door could not do anything due to the restrictions and attitude of the staff.

“At the time the babies were brought out, they were burnt and already turned black, even while she held the babies, their skin was cracked and the effort to hold them tightly to herself for consolation got their skin even peeled off.”

This is terrible.
What a sad incident.
Some medical officers are agents of Satan.
An enquiry with proper prosecution needs to take place

They should sue the hospital and the NMA should sanction them accordingly...

When employment is done on nepotism, tribalism or to the highest bidder in bribery, it is expected.

Terrible news

Very terrible... Most nurses working in government hospitals in Nigeria are the most careless and aggressive beings on earth!

Government needs to personally handle this case and arrest those nurses with very harsh sentence so as to teach others lesson. But that's if the governor is a human being with human heart.

I have searched the nooks and crannies of the internet and can't find this news on any of the national newspaper websites. This is because it happened in the Lagos Tinubu built so they have paid the "South West " owned media to suppress the news.

If it were to be in Anambra State now, it would be on every major news headlines with even the Federal Government sending a panel of enquiry there so that the whole world will hear it and it would have hit Nairaland since October when it happened for people like FreeStuffsNg to masturbate over.

Thank God it happened in their "perfect Eko city" and the victim (Bankole) is from their tribe.

Where e for pain me pass na if to say the mother of the twins was Igbo.
