Hospital Detains Mother, Twins For 45 Days

An indigent mother of a newly born set of twins, Mrs. Toyin Adebayo, was detained by the management of a private hospital in Ado Ekiti for 45 days after failing to offset the hospital bill for a Caesarean section.

Our correspondent gathered on Friday that the woman was rushed to the hospital on December 23 from a mission house, where she was taken to be delivered of her babies.

Adebayo was said to have been rushed to the private hospital when she started bleeding profusely following a complication.

Although the family of the woman could not pay any deposit, the hospital management was said to have ordered that the woman be operated upon to save her life and her unborn children.

The hospital was said to have later demanded about N100,000 but no member of her family showed up.

Consequently, the woman and her set of twins were detained in the hospital until the medical bill could be paid.
