Maitama General Hospital: FCCPC investigates Olorufemi’s death

The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission has commenced an investigation on the case of Greatness Olorufemi, who died at Maitama General Hospital over alleged negligence.

Babatunde Irukera, the Executive Vice-Chairman/Chief Executive Officer, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.

DAILY POST recalls that Olorufemi died at the hospital after a ‘One Chance’ gang operating in Abuja, stabbed and threw her out of a vehicle.

Accordingly, Olorunfemi reportedly died upon arrival at Maitama General Hospital.

Reacting to the development, FCCPC vowed to get to the root of the matter.

“The Commission commiserates with Ms. Greatness Olorunfemi’s family, friends and associates affected by this tragic loss. The Commission has opened an investigation accordingly.

“Of particular concern is if Ms Greatness Olorunfemi died on account of failures implicated in the Commission’s Patients’ Bill of Rights (PBoR) or other enforceable legal instruments regarding attention and care to patients generally, and more specifically, in emergencies where victims of criminal conduct require medical attention.

“Considering the facility concerned is a government institution, upon gathering initial evidence and the Commission’s determination that there is sufficient basis/probable cause to proceed with a limited inquiry into the consumer protection aspects of the events or series thereof resulting in this fatality, the Commission immediately engaged relevant stakeholders, including the Office of the Mandate Secretary for Health Services and Environment for the FCT,” the Commission stated.
