Nigerians bail out nursing mother detained in Lagos hospital

Nigerians have come to the rescue of a nursing mother, Blessing Bassey, and her baby, who for seven months had been sleeping on the floor of one of the wards of Mojol Hospital, Church Street, in the Shasha area of Lagos State.

It was reported that the 27-year-old was delivered of a baby girl at the hospital through a caesarean section.

The hospital management, however, ordered nurses and doctors to ensure that Blessing did not leave with her baby until the N95,000 balance of their bill was paid.

The Cross River State indigene, who bemoaned her fate, said efforts by her husband to raise the money were abortive.

After the publication on October 2, 2020, various persons and groups offered to settle the bill.

Among them were Right and Welfare of Traumatized Wives and Youths Initiative, Global Medical Organization, and others who wanted to remain anonymous.
