Her elder sister told this writer on phone, Monday that when her husband, Bakare, discovered December last year, that the wife was increasing becoming weak and haggard-looking, complaining of all sorts of ailments, he complained to her elder sister.
Her words: “A decision was reached to take her to the General Hospital in Ikeja, Lagos, on January 4, 2020, where series of medical examinations conducted on her revealed by the doctors, revealed she had kidney failure and needed to carry out kidney transplant abroad”.
According to the sister, “initially when she was taken to the hospital, the husband, family members, relations and well wishers contributed N51, 000 per day, three times per week for her dialysis”.
On Monday, January 27, 2020, her sister told this writer that her sibling, who was not admitted to the hospital, but attends the hospital three times a week, pays N41,000, per day, each time she comes to the hospital.
Calculation shows that N41, 000 times three days a week translates to N123, 000 a week and N492, 000 per month.
