The mother of a female corps member, Ifedolapo Oladepo, who died at the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, orientation camp in Kano State has shared details of the deceased’s final moments.
Oladepo, a First Class graduate of Transport Management from the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, died on Tuesday and was laid to rest in her hometown in Osogbo, Osun State.
Unconfirmed reports making the rounds have it that she died as a result of negligence from camp officials, who allegedly mistook her illness for pretense to avoid going out for parade.
While the NYSC management is yet to comment on the incident, the mother of the deceased, Oyeyode Abimbola Inioluwa, on her Facebook page accused the NYSC of successfully cutting short her daughter’s destiny due to negligence.
The grieving woman wrote: “You called me five hours to your death and told me to start coming as the NYSC doctors are not doing any thing for you; they thought you were pretending, you did not want to go for parade so they did not attend to you.
“When you started calling people from home, they eventually gave you an injection; immediately after the injection, you called me again that you notice a lot of rashes on your body that I should speak with the doctor who refused to talk to me. You called five minutes later and told me your tongue is twisting.
“They sent all your friends out after seeing all the reaction on your body, after giving you the unknown injection. You said we should ask for flight and I called immediately, they told me Abuja flight is Mon,wed &Fri.
“I told you to tell anybody in the clinic that am a nurse they should allow me to speak to them; a male nurse took phone from you and told me you are having anaphylactic reaction and they will watch you for just one hour and transfer you to Aminu kano teaching hospital but alas they did not transfer you until 5hours later wen they noticed you are restless and calling people at home.
“I boarded a bus going to kano with ur sister oladepo Kemisola Oladepo to come pick you from there, I begged them to take you to a teaching hospital around but they took you to General hospital gwazo where they have noting or little care to render.
“They took your phone from you claiming you are not resting, from that 5’pm I could not talk to you,I took a 16 hours journey to make sure I get to you, but I was called around 3am that you gave up, without any doctor in the hospital to assist you, the only nurse on duty told me she tried her best.
“Her best of staying beside you wen death was taking you away cos there was noting to use, from that 3am till I got to kano I was hoping it will only be a mix up somewhere, it can’t be you, got to kano and met you at aminu kano mortuary.
“Alas it was you being put in that cold place.
“Amokkkkkeeeeeeeeee Mi you couldn’t withstand the agony.
“NYSC successfully cut your destiny due to negligence.
“REST ON OUR QUEEN,if you are opportune to come back to the world pls coma as my daughter.
“ADIEU Oladepo Ifedolapo AMOkE MI.”
