Quack Nurse Uses Torchlight To Perform CS, As Pregnant Woman Loses Baby, Womb

Rita Enemuru, Reporting

A pregnant woman, one Mrs Vivian (surname withheld), has lost her baby and womb during childbirth in the hands of a quack nurse in Delta State.

Mrs Vivian lost her baby after the nurse, Mrs Ebi Igho, allegedly made multiple cuts on her abdomen during a caesarian section (CS) which was performed with torchlight.

The process, which went awry, allegedly led to haemorrhage from 9:00a.m till 8:00p.m on the day the incident occurred.

Further reports said she was later rushed to the Warri Central Hospital where her womb had to be removed in order to save her life.

Stonix News gathered that the incident happened at New Era Street, Jakpa Road, Effurun in Uvwie Local Government Area where the quack nurse resides and operates from.

Stonix News further gathered that the nurse was arrested after the spokesman of the Committee for the Defense of Human Rights (CDHR) and Secretary, Delta State Human Rights Protection Congress, Mr Kelvin Ejumudo, reported the case to the police.

Ejumudo told journalists that Mrs Igho confessed to the police that she was not a registered nurse and had no formal medical training in the job.

“She carried out this process with the use of a torchlight and no generating set and no licence to operate as a nurse”

“I want to specially appreciate the DPO EKPAN Division, CSP Bulus Rimamchirika Musa who gave me a patrol hilux for this arrest.

“Mr and Mrs Igho are cooling off at the Ekpan police station and will be charged to court for prosecution,” he said.

In addition, he cautioned pregnant women to be mindful of fake nurses for their safety and that of their unborn children, urging them to go to government hospitals and health centers for medical check up.

He also called on the Delta State Government and the Commissioner of Health in the state to ensure that similar unprofessional outlets within the state are destroyed and culprits arrested,

“The Nigerian medical Association (NMA) must put their toes on the ground as well as monitor such illegal persons,” he said.

When Stonix News contacted the police, DSP Bright Edafe confirmed the incident.

He said, “I am aware of the incident. What happened is that she was to be delivered in the hospital via Caesarean section. So while she was being operated on, it was noticed that she took some concoction.

“After the operation when the child died, she was asked who gave her concoction and that was how she led her family to the place of the Woman that was arrested. That’s the information we have no but investigation is ongoing.”
