“A year ago, January 8, 2021, my first daughter, Divine was killed by a motorcycle at College of Education Junction, Agbor. In the same month, January 24, 2022, my only son, Testimony and my pregnant wife, Mrs Blessing Victor Oruebor were sent to early grave by a fuel Tanker driver. I was at my motorcycle shop at Abraka Road, Boji-Boji, Owa when I heard of the ghastly motor accident.I did not bother to visit the scene of the accident. Unfortunately, I was called on the phone some minutes after the accident by someone who I am yet to remember his name asking me to come immediately to the accident scene. Without wasting any time, I arrived there where I saw my wife’s shoes, then, it dawned on me that my wife and children were the victims. I was heartbroken when I saw the bodies of my wife and son dismembered beyond recognition.
“With the help of sympathizers I rushed to Central Hospital, Agbor to see my remaining two children who were also involved in the accident. When I got there one was placed on oxygen while the other sustained a minor injury. Due to lack of intensive medical care at the hospital I was advised to quickly take my daughter who was on oxygen to University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), Benin-City or Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Asaba for urgent medical attention. Despite my bad condition I was made to pay fifty thousand naira(#50,000) to the management before I was allowed to carry her out of the hospital. Unfortunately, in the process the oxygen my daughter was on with got finished at Umunede on our way to FMC, Asaba but, the great God preserved her life”,Mr Uruebor stated.
He added, “I lost my first daughter, 9years old because of the poor medical facility at the Agbor Central Hospital. The delay in getting to UBTH where we were referred to, caused my daughter’s life.The pains of losing my wife and children are too much to bear. As I speak now, my daughter is still lying helpless at FMC, Asaba. God has forsaken me by allowing death to reign in my household.
