Female student dies as hospital refuse to treat her over N10k

So this pretty girl is gone because of N10,000? Sigh!

 19-year-old undergraduate student of Osun State University,Odeyinka, has died when a hospital refused to treat her because she could not pay their bill, N10,000.

According to a colleague of the deceased who posted the story on FB, Odeyinka was a sickle cell patient, a 100 level student in the department of Anatomy, Faculty of Health Sciences died at a hospital when the doctors refused to treat her as she couldn’t pay their N10,000 bills.

The story: “Today being one of the saddest moment of my life. I lost someone so dear to me, the person of Odeyinka Ganiyat Feyisara, someone that I just met in a short while, thinking we were going to have a good time together.

She was a nice person. I had the feeling that she was going to be one of the best female friends I ever had.

All my hopes were cut short when the news got to me that she died this morning after a mild sickness and the community hospital refused to begin treatments on her due to lack of funds which her parents could sort out after the whole treatment.

Mere looking at it, they requested for just 10 thousand Naira (#10,000) which I myself could afford at that moment.

But I wasn’t there for her; I got there just too late… #sobs..

They didn’t begin treatment on her. They just recommended some experimental drugs for her which ended up as an overdose, and led to constipation… and I lost her.

Odeyinka Ganiyat Feyisara, I am so sorry I wasn’t there when you needed me the most. I can never forget you.

May your soul rest in perfect peace.”
