Missing intestine: Doctor who operated on boy not a surgeon – Lagos Assembly
Dr. Abayomi Baiyewu, the doctor who performed surgery twice on late Adebola Akin-Bright, has been revealed not to be a qualified surgeon.
This was revealed by Noheem Adams, the chairman of the Lagos Assembly ad-hoc committee with the mandate to investigate the circumstances that led to the disappearance of Adebola Akin-Bright’s small intestine.
This is also as the Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa, during plenary on Thursday, directed the Clerk, Olalekan Onafeko, to write to the State Police Command for the arrest of Dr. Abayomi Baiyewu of Obitoks Hospital in the Alimosho area of Lagos.
Adebola died on Tuesday shortly after the House called on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to further assist the patient in seeking treatment abroad.
While thanking Governor Sanwo-Olu for his effort at the period the boy was being treated at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH, Obasa directed that a letter conveying the condolence message of the House be sent to the family.
Obasa further asked the committee to look into other grey areas including inviting officials of the Health Facility Monitoring and Accreditation Agency, HEFAMAA, which has the law-backed responsibility to monitor private hospitals operating in the state.
