Lagos: 12-year-old Boy With Missing Intestines Is Dead

Adebola Akin-Bright, the 12-year-old boy with missing intestines at the Lagos State University Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja, is dead.

According a reliable source, Adebola died at LASUTH on Tuesday night after spending over one month in the hospital.

The source said, “He passed on this evening, I can confirm that because I spoke with the mother. The mother and I are very close. I walked her to LASUTH. There were about four doctors working on the boy. The boy was gasping for breath. When they tried to do all they could do and couldn’t find anything, they just put oxygen on him and I joined them to put the boy in the ambulance. They took him straight to the Intensive Care Unit and at that point, I had to leave. I just got home now and I called my friend (the mum). She said, ‘The boy has given up already’ and hung up the call.”

Earlier on Tuesday, the Lagos State House of Assembly called on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to direct the Ministry of Health to release funds for the overseas treatment of the boy.

Governor Sanwo-Olu had in August visited the sick boy and pledged his support.

The Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa, while presiding over Tuesday’s plenary, moved that Akin-Bright needed urgent treatment abroad.

Obasa and the House also called for the immediate arrest of the doctor of the private hospital, Obitoks Medical Centre, in the Alimosho area of the state, who performed the initial surgery that led to the missing small intestine while investigations continue.

The speaker’s position followed a preliminary report by the Majority Leader, Noheem Adams, who briefed the House on the findings of a five-man ad hoc committee created to investigate the circumstances that led to the disappearance of the boy’s intestine.
