Mother narrates final moments of her daughter who died in Kano NYSC camp due to negligence
The mother of a Batch B corps member who died at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camp in Kano, has given details of happenings that led to her daughter’s death. Writing on her Facebook wall, Oyeyode Abimbola Inioluwa, said her daughter, Oladepo Ifedolapo, a graduate of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, was left unattended to by camp officials who thought she was feigning illness to avoid attending the usual parade. “You called me five hours to your death and told me to start coming as the NYSC doctors are not doing anything for you. They thought you were pretending you did not want to go for parade so they did not attend to you. When you started calling people from home they eventually gave you an injection. Immediately after the injection you called me again that you noticed a lot of rashes on your body that I should speak with the doctor who refused to talk to me. You called five minutes later and told me your tongue is twisting. They sent all your friends out after seeing all the reaction on your body after giving you the unknown injection. You said we should ask for flight and I called immediately, they told me Abuja flight is Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I told you to tell anybody in the clinic that I am a nurse, and they should allow me to speak to them. A male nurse took the phone from you and told me you are having anaphylactic reaction and they will watch you for just one hour and transfer you to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital.
