Mr. Chukwu who spoke to Nigeria Newspoint from his sick bed, said that his persecution started immediately he was admitted into the hospital following a ghastly motor accident he had with a “hit and run” driver.
The patient asserted that after his admission into the hospital, the matron in-charge of ward II of the accident victim Maria Asodike allegedly asked him to tender a discharge request so that he would introduce him to another hospital where he would be treated.
Mr. Chukwu alleged that the hospital the matron wants to go, is allegedly owned by her husband, Dr. E. Asodike who is an orthopaedic consultant at the FMC. He said that the matron issued him with an open threat immediately he refused her request, that she would make sure that he dies in the hospital.
Mr. Chukwu, a journalist and father of six claimed that since March no medical attention has been administered on him, as the matron has allegedly connived with other nurses under her to make sure that his medical record disappeared.
The accident victim alleged that the matron and her husband, had a confrontation with him in one of the routine ward checkups and hit him in the process.
Mr. Chukwu also alleged that the matron on one of the days, brazenly disconnected the skeletal traction that was helping his bones heal.
He continued “because of lack of attention, my broken bones have been infected, smelling and detorating. My bed sheets have not been changed for three months.”
Mr. Chukwu therefore appealed to the Governor of the State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha and the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Taiwo Lakanu to come to his rescue from the couple whom he alleged want to kill him by all means.
The management said that investigation on the patient's allegation has begun with the view of carrying out justice.
