A maternity near Nkwo Amaenyi, Awka, manhandles three nursing mothers for failing to pay up their medical bills.
Sources revealed that all the three women delivered of their babies through caesarean sections with their bills worth more than a hundred and seven thousand naira.
Though one of the women lost her baby during the operation, a woman whose name is Mrs Arit Abraham Sunday from Cross River but married to an Akwa Ibom man said she has been at Chidubem Hospital and Maternity for almost three weeks without adequate care, as the hospital management has suspended further treatment on her.
She further lamented that the hospital management chased away her husband and mother from the hospital because of the bill, thereby affecting her health and that of her first child who has been withdrawn from school for almost three weeks.
Meanwhile, another nursing mother in the clinic, complained that she is suffering from injuries sustained following the caesarean operation. According to her, whenever she drinks water, the liquid oozes out of her unhealed belly and this has become a serious concern for her.
According to the relations of these women, their efforts to redeem the medical bills have failed, thereby appealing to well-meaning Nigerians and government to come to their aid.
Nevertheless, all efforts to reach the owner of the clinic for confirmation of the situation prove abortive as staff on duties had been instructed not to give anyone information.
