Reacting to the sad development, the hospital’s Medical Director (MD), Dr. Donald Anyoru, who spoke to Oasis Magazine via a telephone conversation, said the news of her death came as a rude shock, saying they will greatly miss her.

He added: “The management visited the family of the deceased in Abraka today. She was a nice woman, very cooperative and a peacemaker. I have been here for about a year now and I can say that she is one of the few persons that you can discuss issues with.

“We are sad. ‘Today work naw get head ooo.’ We were supposed to share rice today, but we could not. Like the husband said, we have decided to leave this issue to God.”

According to him, they are making arrangements to officially inform the Hospital Management Board of the development.
