Nyanya Bombing: Hospital Rejects Victims Of Second Blast

share on:
The series of explosions that rocked the Federal Capital Territory in the last two weeks appear to have taken toll on its health facilities as some of the hospitals in the territory  rejected victims of  Thursday’s  bomb blast at Nyanya, a satellite community within the FCT, which left 30 people dead and many others injured.

Saturday PUNCH learnt that  some victims  were sent back when they were brought to  hospitals on Friday morning.

At the Asokoro General Hospital, Abuja, victims were turned back  due to lack of bed spaces. It was reported that some patients were sent back when they were brought to the hospital on Friday morning.

For example, a woman, who was brought to the Accident and Emergency Unit of the hospital in a Honda Odyssey car with registration number BM 837RBC, was not allowed to be brought down from the vehicle.

The old lady, who was lying at the back seat of the car, was feeling uncomfortable as the driver of the car was speaking with the officials of the hospital.

After a few minutes of fruitless discussion, he drove out of the compound, in search of another hospital.

Apparently, nearly all the government hospitals in the city were fully occupied. At the Wuse General Hospital, all the bed spaces were occupied.

Meanwhile, the Asokoro General Hospital has spelt out the procedure that relations of victims involved in the bomb blast should follow in order to collect the corpses of their relations.
