Doctor Reportedly Dies In Elevator Accident At Lagos Island General Hospital




Doctor Vwaere

A Nigerian doctor with less than two weeks to complete her housemanship has allegedly died in an elevator accident.

Naija News learnt that the tragic incident involving the young medical doctor identified as Vwaere occurred at the General Hospital Odan in Lagos Island.

In the series of social media posts by friends of the deceased, the elevator in which Vwaere was in was said to have fallen from the 10th floor to the ground floor while she was going to pick up something from a dispatch rider outside.

It was also alleged that it took the hospital one hour before the body of the victim was evacuated and rushed to the emergency before she died.

A staff who also tweeted about the incident said the elevator was known to have had issues, and staff had made complaints about it.

The tweet reads, “Particularly aggrieved because we’ve complained for a long time about this elevator. We’ve manoeuvred, managed and prayed each time we had to use it. Empty promises will be made to fix it….till it killed one of us.”

At the time of the report, the hospital management and family of the deceased is yet to make any statement regarding the death.

Man Nabbed For Killing Policeman While Trying To Flee

In other news, the Ondo police command has arrested a 47-year old man identified as Godson James, for allegedly killing a police officer along Ifon-Benin road, in Ose LGA of the state.

According to the spokesperson of the command, Funmilayo Odunlami, the suspect was fleeing from policemen along the route.

He said the officers had been alerted of a crime he committed in Akure, the state capital, before he killed the policeman.

However, the suspect, while being paraded at the headquarters of the command in Akure, said he killed a “criminal” in self-defence, and not a police officer.
