James Auta, the demised’s hubby, said his woman was rejected by the medical center when he couldn’t make the payment due to the scarcity of the naira notes.
He said, I ran to my bank to withdraw money but was told no money in the bank. I went back looking for POS operators, but I couldn’t find any because, since the issue of new currency began, most POS operator locked up their businesses.
howbeit, as he couldn’t withdraw the money, they both decided to go home, trusting God for safe delivery.
Unfortunately, their situation took a turn for the worse, which eventually led to her death.
James recalled, ”My woman began labour around 11:00pm. Since I couldn’t withdraw any money, I called the attention of a nurse within our location. But as my woman delivered, blood was coming outnon-stop. All efforts by the nurse to stop the bleeding stalled. ”
