Former Niger State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Danladi Ndayebo, would probably have survived the accident he was involved in if medical staff at the Babangida Specialist Hospital had attended to him.
His brother, Usman Ndayebo told Punch newspaper that the ex-commissioner died from negligence on the part of health workers at the Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida Specialist Hospital in Minna.
Ndayebo who was involved in a motor accident about 35 kilometers to minna on the Suleja-Minna express road at about 7:30pm on Sunday died at past 2pm on Monday.
Usman Ndayebo, told the newspaper that the ex-commissioner arrived the hospital at about 9:30pm talking normally but complained about slight pain on his chest.
According to the younger Ndayebo, his late brother was unattended to as no scan or x-ray was carried out to ascertain the reason for the chest pain all through the night up until the morning.
“From the time they were brought to the hospital, there were no staff to operate the scan machine or the x-ray machine to carry out tests on him.
“There is a scanner and an x-ray machine in the hospital but the staff were not on ground to operate the machines.
He also added that by morning, the late Ndayebo still wasn’t being attended to until a former Secretary to the Niger State Government, Kuta Yahaya, intervened before the staff of the hospital started to attend to him.
He further stated that as they were about to transfer him to the general hospital when he died.
When contacted by Punch, the CMD of the hospital, Isah Umar, said he was unaware of the cause of the death.
“I am unaware of that and I am not the position to speak on that,” he was quoted as saying.
