Bereaved Nigerian Couple Cry For Justice After The Horror Of Watching One Of Their Twin Babies Die At A Popular Lagos Hospital

A Nigerian couple, Imbul Dooyum Kelvin, and Mimidoo Rufina, have cried out bitterly for justice after one of their two-month-old twin daughters, Zoe, died due to alleged negligence at the Randle Mother and Child hospital in Surulere, Lagos on Friday, January 15, 2020.

It was gathered that the unfortunate incident occurred two days after they arrived at the hospital.

In a video that was shared online, the bereaved mother, Rufina, said she brought her child to the hospital for a routine checkup. She said the doctors told her to breastfeed her baby and she did and that while she was breastfeeding, she noticed her baby wasn’t breathing.

She said she raised an alarm and instead of the nurses to attend to her, they allegedly sent her away, telling her that she was making noise. She said her baby died afterward and that it was when her baby died that the nurses decided to attend to her.

The couple is demanding justice for their baby who they watched die. The bereaved dad narrated:

“We woke-up on Wednesday morning and my wife said our baby wasn’t eating well again so we took her to the hospital, the doctor examined her and said she was ok but let us run a blood test to confirm if there was an infection.

Shortly after they took blood from her, my daughter cried for two-hours nonstop. We called the attention of the doctor and they rushed her to the ER and placed her on oxygen.

She was responding very well not until on Friday, the doctor came in and asked my wife to breastfeed her because she was stable for breastfeeding, after breastfeeding her, my baby started crying and my wife ran to the nurses to please come to check our daughter but instead, they sent her away, telling her she disturb too much.

My wife begged them with tears that please she’s not understanding her daughter but they neglected her, it was after the baby gave up that my wife started crying that they came to check her but by this time she was far gone already.”
