"People will no longer be buried alive mistakenly" says Oluwo of Iwo

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba AbdulRasheed Akanbi, has taken delivery of about N1.5bn worth of hospital equipment and consumables which will be donated to the State Hospital in Iwo, Osun state.

The monarch (who formerly resided in Canada) said the National Association of Young Adults in Canada donated the equipment consisting of digital ultrasound machines, 30 electrical beds, defibrillators and much more.

He  also explained that the practice in Islam where the dead are buried immediately might have led to situations where those who merely went into coma or had a faint pulse were buried alive and the new equipment would help in confirming that someone is dead before they are buried.


The monarch also promised to help renovate Iwo hospital before the new equipment is installed

Meanwhile, the Chief Medical Officer, State Hospital, Iwo, Dr. Oyebamiro Idowu has expressed appreciation to the monarch, saying  the hospital has never received such from any government at once, while promising that the equipment would be well used for the benefit of the people.
