A businessman, Aare Femi Adebayo, has sought the services of two Senior Advocates of Nigeria, Akin Olujinmi and Rotimi Akeredolu, to write the management of the University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan over the death of his wife.

According to Mr Adebayo, his wife, Funmilayo Adebayo’s death was caused by incompetence and negligence on the part of medical experts that conducted a test on her at the hospital. The woman was said to have gone to the teaching hospital for routine medical check-up, but died in the process. He insists that his wife, who did not complain of any ailment, was killed due to negligence on the part of the hospital.

Therefore he’s asking the hospital via these Senior advocates to release the report of a post-mortem test conducted on his late wife the deceased within seven days.

He said his wife, aged 58, had, on January 25, driven herself to UCH in company of a housemaid, Odunayo, for medical check up which she had started a week earlier. When Vanguard called the hospital, the Public Affairs Manager, Mr. Deji Bobade, said the hospital would respond at the appropriate time. He said: “The Chief Medical Director, Professor Temitope Alonge, is not in the country. He travelled abroad. Our response will be in tandem with values and traditions that guide medical practice.”
