A video going viral on social media is shattering hearts as a father wailed over the loss of his son at the Maternal and Childcare Centre (MCC), located in Eti-Osa Local Government Area of Lagos.
The yet to be identified man claimed he brought his son in for treatment alive and up till the moment of recording the video, no one could explain to him what actually happened to his son.
“Look at my son that I brought into the hospital alive o. The guy was healthy this morning until the nurse came and injected him four times!
“I even tried to explain to her that this guy has not eaten. Moreover, last night that she administered that same drug to him, that the drug overreacted on him that made him threw up all the food he ate yesterday. That she should hold on, let me give my son food… She refused.
“Immediately she gave this my son four full syringes… my son gave up the ghost and she ran away,” he wailed.
Freelanews recalls the Lagos State Government added MCC in 2019 with an expectation to increase residents’ access to qualitative maternal and child healthcare.
“One of these strategies is the construction of MCC, a specialised healthcare centre for mothers and children.
“It is aimed at taking maternal and child healthcare closer to the people by reducing the travel time and improving the quality care to the highest possible standard,” the state Commissioner of Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, said at the time.
