Michael Ikyaator  explained that his uncle had passed out after he slumped and he was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital in Abuja but what they met shocked them all as it also led to the death of the man.

He narrated that the hospital demanded that they provide a police report before his uncle can be treated. He said his uncle passed away in the car he was brought in.

He wrote:

My uncle slumped yesterday in Abuja and was rushed to the Asokoro District Hospital, the hospital refused to treat him and insisted on a police report, he died in the car he was brought in, he wasn’t shot or stabbed. What have we done to the Nigerian healthcare system?

Not too long after we lost Moradeun Balogun to the same careless system, another innocent Nigerian has to die over a senseless and heartless policy. Who invented the police report policy and why do they still insist on it?

He wasnt in any form of violence, passed out, why did we need to bring a police report??? All of the hospital staff at Asokoro District Hospital refused to treat until he died in car he was brought in. I am lost for words here.”
