The former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia died at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, Abuja, on 19 September.
The Middle Belt Forum on Sunday said that he was badly treated by doctors.
Here is what we know so far.
Mr. Obadiah, 64, was reportedly treated badly to death by doctors at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital. The National Publicity Secretary of MBF, Dr. Isuwa Dogo say the death happened on Sunday morning 19 September.
The former CBN deputy governor was suffering from malaria after he came to Abuja from Ondo state.
After three days of treatment without signs of improvement, he went to the Hospital on Friday, September 17, 2021, where he was shabbily treated.
It took the intervention of a senior medic who immediately placed him on oxygen and admitted him.
He was later given the option of choosing three hospitals: Gwagwalada Hospital, National Hospital and EHA Clinics. The wife opted for the third choice.
On arrival at the EHA Clinics, the wife was subjected to yet another moment of anxiety as it took a direct order from the top management of the hospital to accept him.
Few hours of treatment, the EHA Clinics told the wife that it was sensible to transfer the former CBN Deputy Governor to Gwagwalada, as the clinic was not fully equipped to handle the case.
The wife opposed the decision and insisted that she was opposed to the idea of taking her husband to Gwagwalada.
Mailafia’s wife only succumbed when the consultant assured her that nothing bad will happen to her husband.
On, Saturday, September 18, 2021, Dr. Obadiah was transferred to Gwagwalada. On arrival, the doctor that was billed to attend to Dr. Mailafia was not on duty. Even when an attempt was made by foreign health consultants to save the situation, the doctor on duty got angry and said that he was not oWho killed Obadiah Mailafia obligated to listen to any foreign consultants that had been brought into the matter with the sole purpose of ensuring that nothing goes wrong.
After the doctors declared Dr. Mailafia dead, foreign consultants who were brought into the matter through Dr. Mailafia’s son who lives abroad, had directed a family member who is a medical professional, with the wife of the CBN Deputy Governor, to mount pressure on the chest of Dr. Mailafia for resuscitation and thereafter place him on life support.
The doctors in Gwagwalada refused all entreaties by the family members of Dr. Mailafia to follow the advice of the foreign consultants, insisting that they have already pronounced him dead. Even when the wife could feel the pulse of her husband, the doctor flatly declared that there was nothing they could do since they had already pronounced him dead.
At the time of this report, we are still awaiting the result of the actual cause of his death.
