Family Of Lady Who Died After Fibroid Operation Demand For Justice + Operation Reportedly Performed By A Nurse!

The family of a businesswoman, Fatima Isa, have demanded justice after she died during a fibroid surgery at the Felobam Alpha Clinic in the Mafoluku area of Oshodi, Lagos State.










PUNCH Metro gathered that the victim, alongside her sister, Queen, left their hometown in Auchi, Edo State, and travelled down for the surgery at the medical facility.

When the sisters got to the hospital last Thursday, Fatima was admitted and Queen slept over at the hospital.

Speaking to our correspondent, Queen said the management of the hospital demanded N190,000 for the surgery, adding that she left her sister in their care to withdraw the money

She said, “The money was in my account, so, I went to the bank, withdrew the money, but when I returned to the hospital around 1.35pm, they had already taken my sister to the theatre to perform the surgery despite not signing any form.

“When I did not hear from them for four hours, I called one of the nurses to know what was happening but was told that they were cleaning her up. Around 5pm, the doctor walked out of the hospital and as I asked after my sister, she said she was OK.

“Later, they brought my sister out. But when I saw my sister, she was breathing abnormally. I quickly alerted the doctor and nurses and the person assisting the doctor came and started hitting my sister’s laps.

“When my sister shook her head, the assistant doctor said she was OK, simply because she shook her head. But as he stepped out, she started breathing heavily and all of sudden, she stopped breathing and that was how she died.


“I quickly called the doctors and nurses again. When they rushed in, they said I should go out, but I refused. I started shouting and crying. I called one of my sisters, Kate, and she came around 8pm. We both slept where Fatima’s corpse was dumped in the hospital.

“The doctors and nurses just abandoned us there. Early in the morning, I called my sister in Asaba, who told us to call our cousin, Momoh, who was in Lagos. We want the government to help us get justice for what they did to my sister. We heard the person that operated on my sister is not even a doctor.”


Momoh alleged that the doctor who performed the surgery was an impostor.


She said, “Fatima’s last words while gasping for breath was ‘God have mercy on me.’ When Queen alerted the doctor as she was breathing abnormally, they gave her an injection, but she continued struggling to breathe and died.


“When she called us, we rushed to the facility. I became angry because the whole place was worse than an abattoir. We asked the doctor what happened and he told me that after the surgery, she developed cardiac arrest and died.


“I asked the cause of the cardiac arrest, but the doctor was just speaking like an illiterate and could not even make a complete sentence, and he is running a hospital in Lagos State of all places.


“We asked for her file and they brought out a paper, but there was nothing in the file to indicate that a test was carried out before the surgery. We asked who performed the surgery and we were told one Lawrence, and that he works with LASUTH.


“We collected Lawrence’s phone number, but he didn’t pick his call. We later got to know that he is a nurse and not a doctor. We got the death certificate, which was signed by Lawrence, and reported at a police station in Mafoluku because we want justice.”


In a video clip obtained by our correspondent, one Felix, who was said to be running the facility, was heard telling Momoh that Fatima died of cardiac arrest.


However, calls and a text message sent to Felix to get a reaction regarding the circumstances surrounding the victim’s death were unanswered.


Our correspondent contacted Lawrence for a reaction, but he did not take his calls and had yet to respond to a text message regarding the incident.


The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, said two suspects had been arrested in connection with the death of the businesswoman.


He said, “Two people, including the nurse that did the operation, have been arrested. They have been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, for further investigation.”

    1. Quite unfortunate. Even though its wrong, there are some nurses who do better than doctors in this thing (having learnt it over the years). They usually correct some doctors in many cases who due to the negligence or maybe cluelessness would have killed a patient. Not saying it is right though but some doctors need to step up their game as a lot of nurses have sort of saved lives through things like this or would I say 'ITK'? lol

    3. Nurses are not trained to cut a patient open.

      How on earth will a nurse be performing myomectomy? 7 years in medical school no be beans. Abeg each field should face their job and stop this madness.

      May the lady rest in peace, amen

    4. Anon 10:44, our health care system is pitiful. The last time I took my son to a primary health care clinic, there was no doctor in sight. It was a nurse that diagnosed and prescribed drugs for him, and it worked!

    8. 10:44, your unfortunate comment is the reason many are doing in the hands of quacks. Let that brilliant nurse who has learnt the work better than a trained doctor go back to school and obtain a medical degree so that he/she can save lives with the right license and indemnity.

    9. I guess the amount they paid was the major attraction for having the operation with a quack. In fact all our past and present leaders have failed this nation, the health care system is bad and too expensive a common man.

  12. Reading the story in detailed... They went for the surgery in a registered hospital and was billed 190k.

    It's a case of fibroids and it was supposed to be handled by the doctor, but before the person that went to the hospital with the victim returned from bank, the surgery had been carried out by a Nurse🆘

    Funny enough, payment had not been made neither is there any paperwork to give approval by the victim nor her family members.

    This is a total case of unprofessionalism

  16. Same way Mrs Funmilayo Ogundeji a former staff of tantalizers,iyana ipaja died. She had fibroid n went for surgery. Learnt the fibroid was removed but unfortunately she had cardiac arrest n she died. Reason for the saying " the doctor buries his mistakes,the engineer dies with his mistake. At the end what the doctor usually says is sorry,we lost her. May the God help us in this part of the world
