Adebola Omowale,the 40-year-old man that was allegedly stabbed to death, last weekend, by some military officers in a viewing centre around Lekki beach area in Lagos state could have survived if he had received urgent medical attention after the incident.
In fact, it was revealed that the injured man walked to a nearby hospital, clutching his intestines in his hands only to be told by nurses that he would not be treated unless he produced a police report. Crime Alert learnt that after several pleas for him to receive, at least, first aid treatment pending when sympathizers who came to the hospital with him will bring the report, the badly injured man reclined to fate and laid on a pavement helplessly, waiting for succour.
The late Adebola’s younger brother, Rotimi said that much when he spoke with Crime Alert. “On Saturday at about 10pm, I was at home when a neighbour came to inform me that someone called and told him that my elder brother was stabbed and was at Ife- Oluwa hospital. I called my other brothers and we all rushed to the hospital where we met Adebola lying in front of the hospital, clutching onto his intestine that had bulged out. On seeing me, I noticed he regained some strength. Then I rushed into the hospital and asked the nurses why he was not attended to?
As we were at that, I figured out they had requested and were apparently waiting for a Police report before they could commence treatment. Just then a Police man arrived with a report and the hospital management requested we carried him in for treatment. As we made to carry him in, Adebola said no body should touch him, that he could walk on his own to the hospital bed, and he did just that. He carefully lifted him self, clutching onto his stomach, he walked slowly to the bed and laid on it, before the initial treatment commenced.
”I went to Jakande Police Station and reported the case. The DCO was around when I got there and she was angry about the incident because she knew Adebola in person, as a matter of fact, he was very popular in this estate. She sent some Police officers to accompany me to the crime scene along Lekki beach road. I want to state here that such incidents have been happening at that joint and when such things happen, people there would see it but would be scared to report the incidents to the Police. It was at the crime scene we heard that the man who stabbed my brother was a military man.
”The owner of that particular bar engaged the service of military officers to intimidate people in the area, that is why they can not talk. When that incident was happening, some other people were there, but nobody could talk because they knew when the case was settled, the soldiers would come back for them. We also learnt that after he was stabbed, Adebola walked all the way to the hospital, clutching onto his stomach.
The distance was like from Jakande to Chisco bus-stop, and because he was breathing as he walked, his intestine got swollen. It was passersby who saw him, that called our neighbour on phone, and he in turn came to the house and informed us.Back at the hospital, the doctor told us that he would be transferred to the General hospital at Marina as soon as possible, because the hospital could not afford to keep him for long, owing to the magnitude of the injury.
“Since my car could not start, I called one of our family friends and explained the situation to him, he rushed to Ife – Oluwa hospital around 12am and we took Adebola to the General hospital at Marina in his car. On getting to the Emergency Unit of the hospital at about 1am, I had to run around for the routine procedures of getting him a card and other required payments.
After that, the doctor on duty came and examined him, he asked us if he was still alive, we answered in the affirmative. The doctor talked to him, he responded. Then we were ordered to carry him inside the ward, again my brother said no body should touch him, that he could walk to the ward, he gently lifted him self, got up, walked slowly into the ward and laid on the bed.
The doctor wrote out some drugs that we should buy, I embarked on another round of running around, making payments, getting a receipt and going back to get the drugs; I was given 10 packs of drip with the drugs, which I took back to the ward. It was after this that they commenced treatments on Adebola. The doctor also told us that we need to get some pints of blood, but that would be as later on.
“I left the hospital at about 1:30am with Papa, after he dropped the sum of N5,000 in respect to purchasing some blood if the need arises, while one of my brothers stayed behind. I was so exhausted, that I slept off as soon as I got home and didn’t hear when my phone rang repeatedly. Around 5:30 – 6am, I woke up to answer to a knock at the door and was a bit confused when I saw the brother whom we left to be with Adebola at the hospital, he told me they called my number a couple of times but there was no response, hence he had to rush home. He said our brother Adebola gave up the fight to survive around 5:30am,” he stated.

Hoodlums loot Ndoma-Egba house in Calabar, cart away his late father’s robes
Hoodlums who destroyed and looted the residence of former leader of the Nigerian Senate, Victor Ndoma-Egba in Calabar reportedly carted away the Judge’s robes of the politicians’ father.
Reacting to the incidence, Ndoma-Egba appeared to the hoodlums to return the robes of his late father who was a judge.
Ben Ayade, governor of the state, had imposed a 24-hour curfew as part of measures to contain the situation but the mob broke loose.
In a statement, Ndoma-Egba narrated how he got intelligence on the attack but despite informing security agencies, “nothing was done to stop the attack”.
“At about 2 am (local time, as I was abroad) on Saturday 24th. October 2020 I received a text informing me that there were plans by arranged hoodlums to attack my residence in Calabar, that of Senator Gershom Bassey and a hotel owned by Senator John Owan Enor,” he said.
“I promptly forwarded the texts to Senators Bassey and Owan Enoh. I also called the security agencies in Calabar to apprise them of the information. Calabar from my information was already tense from the previous day’s break-in into warehouses storing COVID 19 palliatives and the subsequent breaching of shops and other businesses. The impending attack on Senators Bassey, Owan Enoh and I was already public knowledge as later that morning I got many calls to that effect.
“Thereafter I kept calling the security agencies by the hour when in spite of their assurances that they will secure my house there was no evidence of any security personnel in my vicinity. I understand, the times were indeed confounding for everybody.
“At about 2 pm the intruders broke into my house and looted it to the ground leaving only the bare floor. All the toilets, baths, pumps and indeed every imaginable fitting were removed as were items of furniture, clothing, a huge collection of mainly rare, out of print books, documents and historic photographs. They also removed all the windows, railings, family pictures and burglary proofs. Even my private chapel was not spared.
“They set the cars ablaze and parts of the building after more than four hours of interrupted operations in my house. It was methodical. Among the intruders were obviously electricians, plumbers, carpenters, motor mechanics, panel beaters and other tradesmen. Mercifully, no life was lost. I started building the house in 1991 and moved in in January, 2009.
“While not prejudging, and without prejudice to the work of the security agencies, I have forgiven the intruders, and pray fervently for them to find meaning, inner peace, and fulfilment in their lives. I only plead that they return my late father’s judges robes which they certainly would not be needed for anything and is surely incriminating.
“The destruction of my house was clearly premeditated, wanton and unjustifiable but I understand the anger in the land especially amongst our youths. However, if looting and burning my home will better their lives and bring positive change to our land, then it is a sacrifice my family and I gladly make.”
Ndoma-Egba said there is an urgent need to educate, motivate and engage the youth if they must be a blessing to the country.
