On Tuesday, it was alleged that a female corps member died after being forced to partake in military drills at Kano camp (Read here). It’s now been revealed that she didn’t partake in the drill. She woke up feeling extremely ill and was taken to a clinic where she was allegedly neglected and not given proper medical care. Identified as Oladepo Ifedolapo, she was a first class graduate of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso. She died same day she fell ill and was buried yesterday in Osogbo at her family’s residence amidst tears…
Her elder sister has now recounted the late corps member’s final moments.
According to Oyeyode Abimbola,
“You (Ifedolapo) called me five hour to your death and told me to start coming as the NYSC doctors are not doing any thing for you they thought you were pretending you did not want to go for parade so they did not attend to you. When you started calling people from home, they eventually gave u an injection. Immediately after , You called me again, saying that you noticed a lot of rashes on your body, that I should speak with the doctor who however refused to talk to me.
I called five minutes later
and you told me your tongue is twisting.
They sent all your friends out after seeng all the reaction on your body due to the unknown injection, You said we should ask for flight and i called immediately. They told me Abuja flight is Mon, Wed &Fri. I told you to tell anybody in the clinic that I’m a nurse, That tey should allow me to speak to them. A male nurse took phone and told me you are having anaphylactic reaction and they will watch you for just one hour before transferring you to Aminu Kano teaching hospital. But alas, they did not, until 5 hours later
when they noticed you are restless and calling people at home.
I boarded a bus going to kano with your sister Kemisola Oladepo, to come pick you from there. I begged them to take you to a teaching hospital around but they took you to General hospital gwazo where they have nothing or little care to render. They took your phone from you claiming you are not resting. From that 5 pm I could not talk to you. I took a 16 hours journey to make sure I get to you, but I was called around 3 am that you gave up, without any doctor in the hospital to assist you. The only nurse on duty told me she tried her best, her best of staying beside you when death was taking you away because there was nothing to use.
From that time till I got to Kano, I was hoping it will only be a mix up somewhere. that it can’t be you. I got to Kano and met you at Aminu Kano mortuary. Alas it was you being put in that cold place. Amokkkkkeeeeeeeeee Mi, you couldn’t withstand the agony. NYSC successfully cut your destiny due to negligence. REST ON OUR QUEEN. If you are opportuned to come back to the world pls come as my daughter. ADIEU Oladepo Ifedolapo AMOkE MI
