Jim Nwobodo Accuses Nigerian Doctor Of Killing His Son

Former Gov. of Anambra State, Senator Jim Nwobodo has opened up on the death of his son  Dr. Ifeanyichukwu Nwobodo jnr who died at a private hospital in Enugu on Friday Nov. 14 after he survived  stage four cancer treatment in The States. Speaking during a Abia Sate Gov. Theodore Orji's condolence visit, he said his son's death would have been averted if not for the Nigerian doctor's negligence:
 “My son was ill for five months before I knew about it and we were planning to go to India before we took him to the U.S. He was given a visa for two years because the cancer was at stage four, but they treated him. When he came back, his leg started to swell and he thought he should see a doctor and I advised him to see the best oncologist, who took us three weeks to see the doctor.

On Friday I was speaking with him, three times a day and he was to see the doctor by 5pm and between 5:30 and 6pm, I called him and he said he was with the doctor, I requested to speak with the doctor but he said he was busy but instead of the doctor taking him to UNTH, he took him to his private clinic, where he had no equipment, no facility at all.
I called him again and when I didn’t hear from him I sent him text and I asked the doctor to tell me why he gave my son injection that made him unconscious, he said he was sorry and that he was trying to resuscitate him. I spoke with him by 6:30pm and by 7 pm he was dead. It is painful because this is something that would have been averted and I can’t understand why a dean of Department of Medicine should leave the hospital where he has all the equipment to go to his private clinic and I believe that is how some other people die,”
