FOR PULLING OUT BABY"S HAND DURING DELIVERY, LAGOS STATE GOVT. SEALS MATERNITY.

The Lagos State Government has sealed off the facility of an auxiliary nurse, identified as OYEKANMI in the Odogunyan area of Ikorodu in Lagos State.
In an attempt to deliver a pregnant woman called Adeola of her baby after complication has occurred, Oyekanmi tried forcing the baby out of the womb, thereby leading to pulling out the baby’s hand.


It was tragic as the said baby was later delivered dead in General Hospital Ikorodu.
This horrific incident drew the attention of the Special Adviser to the Governor on Primary Health Care, Dr Olufemi Onanuga who promptly sealed off and closed Oyekanmi Maternity Centre. Lagos State Ministry of Health Spokesperson Adeola Salako while commenting on the incident, told reporters that the Government is looking into the case.

Advice was giving to all pregnant women in the state to shun patronizing quacks for their antenatal as doing so could lead to infant and maternal deaths just as witnessed in Ikorodu.

Government officials visited the General Hospital where they confirmed the incident before visiting Oyekanmi Maternity Center, which was described as a room apartment in Odogunyan area. The sealing off was carried out by the officials of the Health Facility Accreditation And Monitory Agency.


Like any other criminal cases, the incident is now handed over to the Police Criminal Department by the Lagos State Government.
