“All I had was pepper soup and juice That night and I couldn’t stand up again when I got home. How I carried a ruptured ovarian cyst and almost ruptured appendix around for days. Ladies this is your thread.

“I got back from work that faithful Friday night, after laughing and gisting with my colleagues. Then I stood up to ease myself and went back to lay down. The next pain I felt was so sharp that I zoned out immediately without my sister noticing.

“I screamed and told her I can’t stand up again. She asked why? I told her my tummy wants to tear apart. She laughed and said how? I had to explain it wasn’t funny. The next thing I started saying was Joke I don’t want to die. Then she became scared.

“And she dragged me up with my fat body to the next nearby hospital which I aslo use. Now prior to this day, I treated malaria and typhoid in this same hospital and I felt I was fine. Until I had an asthma attack. And I went back to the hospital.

“Now this Friday this doctor kept asking what I ate that night. I told him, he made fun of me saying I didn’t bring some for him too. He innocently thought I had food poisoning. Until the next day…
“When he came to check me in the morning. Please be reminded I was on a lot of pain meds so I couldn’t feel anything again. He decided to press my lower abdomen. Ladies I screamed again for my life. He said I thought you are fine already Ayo.
“He immediately sent me for a scan Ladies a cyst was dancing in my ovaries. And it was larger than normal. First let me explain my little knowledge of cysts with the help of our doctors here @OlufummyA @Deekachy_md etc..
“Cysts grow in almost every woman after ovulation and they always wither and die without the woman noticing. If she notices, antibiotics can be given to her and it can wither and die too. So back to my case, my doctor thought mine will wither with antibiotics.
“The next day he came to press it again, and I screamed too He knew this was past him. So he called a surgeon and a GYN to come and check me. The GYN said I needed to be operated upon immediately. Omo I catch fear as the GYN also suspected Appendix.
“Ladies I had the surgery the next Monday and they found out it was already ruptured. I give my testimony today but I beg you ladies please don’t ignore that unsure pain today. Visit your doctor and tell him how you feel. The end! I’m open for questions tho”.

Hoodlums loot Ndoma-Egba house in Calabar, cart away his late father’s robes

Published

on

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.
