Three months after she passed on at the Premier Specialist Medical Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, the controversy surrounding the death of popular pastry chef, Peju Ugboma, has refused to go away.
This is as the Lagos State Police Command has invited the hospital management as well as doctors directly involved in her case for “a fact-finding” enquiry.
Ugboma, 41, was admitted to the hospital on April 22, 2021, and died on April 23 of alleged internal bleeding, after undergoing a fibroid operation.
Her family blamed negligence on the part of the hospital staff for her demise.
In a letter dated July 6, the police invited the hospital’s medical director, Omololu Osinowo, and five doctors linked to the case – Kazeem Akiseku, Nora Asemota, Kingsley Renner, Alao Olamide, and Sola Johnson.
The invited persons are to report to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti, Yaba on July 14 at 10 am.
According to the letter, the purpose of the inquiry is to bring the matter to a logical conclusion.
The invitees were directed to bring along the medical case note and autopsy report of the deceased.
Premier Specialist Medical Centre has consistently shunned media enquiry since the incident occurred.
