A number of UNIBEN students have staged a protest at the university of Benin teaching hospital (UBTH) over the death of their Director of Sports, Perez Boubouwei.
The protest was held Tuesday, January 24, following the demise of the Director at the hospital.
Dockaysworld learnt that, Perez, a fresh graduate from the Faculty of Education was doing his clearance when he suddenly fell ill on Sunday, January 22, 2023.
He reportedly lost his life after receiving negligible medical attention at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital.
“On Sunday, he complained of stomach ache and was rushed to UBTH. The doctors said that payment should be made before they commerce treatment.
After the payment was made, they gave him several injEctions without running proper test on him to know what was actually wrong with him.
They also asked his family to pay for oxygen but they didn’t use it. They didn’t even tell his mum what was happening to him. They ignored the young man, and attended to someone who came with an ambulance.
The deceased’s family did X-ray, the nurses couldn’t even explain the X-ray result to them. They neglected him until he did,” a source said.
