Ibadan Hospital ‘Detains’ Mother, Baby Over Unpaid N300,000 Delivery Bill

A nursing mother Mrs Adenike Samuel and her three-day-old baby have been held over inability to pay the hospital delivery bill of N300,000.

Mrs Samuel was discharged on April 1 but she and the baby were held at Montana Medical Centre, Challenge Ibadan where she was delivered of the baby because of the inability of her husband to pay the bill.

She urged well-meaning Nigerians and Governor Seyi Makinde to assist her family with financial support.

Mrs Samuel, a native of Ibadan resident at Baba Agba, Wire and Cable, Apata while revealing her ordeal said the total bill of the hospital was N400,000 but her husband was only able to pay N100,000 with the balance of N300,000.

Samuel said the bill was high because she gave birth to the baby through a Caesarean Section (CS).

She said: “The bill amounted to that because I gave birth through Caesarian Section (CS). I am a tailor. I had two children already before this pregnancy came but I never knew I was pregnant until the scan which showed that l was carrying a baby.

“Anybody that is touched by our condition can reach and assist us through my account numbers: Eco Bank, 3880058997, Adenike Babalola, Opay 9042924437, Adenike Babalola. My telephone number is 09042924437.”

The husband, Happiness Samuel, an ‘Okada’ rider from Cross Rivers State, said it would be extremely difficult for him to raise the remaining balance due to the economic challenges in the country. [Leadership]
