The 12-year-old boy with missing intestines, Adebola Akin-Bright taking treatment at the Lagos State University Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja, is dead.
According a reliable source, Adebola died at LASUTH on Tuesday night after spending over one month in the hospital.
The Lagos State House of Assembly had yesterday called on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to direct the Ministry of Health to release funds for overseas treatment of Adebola Akin-Bright, whose intestines got missing in the process of surgery.
Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, while presiding over the day’s plenary, moved that Master Akin-Bright needed the urgent treatment abroad.
He also called for immediate arrest of the doctor of the private hospital, Obitoks Medical Centre in the Alimosho area of the state, who performed the initial surgery that led to the missing small intestine while investigations continue.
