RIP: LASUTH speaks on death of boy whose intestine went missing during surgery

By Rachel Okporu Fadoju

The Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) has revealed arrangements to transfer the boy whose intestines went missing in the process of surgery, Adebola Akin-Bright, to Great Ormond Street Hospital in the UK, were in the final stages before his demise.

Naija News reported that the 13-year-old boy died on Tuesday evening, barely two months after two surgeries performed in a private hospital and a corrective surgery at LASUTH.

Adebola reportedly developed complications on Tuesday evening and was rushed to the intensive care unit of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, where he was thereafter pronounced dead.

The Lagos State House of Assembly had earlier on Tuesday called on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to direct the Ministry of Health to release funds for the overseas treatment of the boy.

In a statement on Wednesday, the hospital management commiserated with Adebola’s family and expressed optimism that the appropriate professional body would step in to unravel the circumstances surrounding his death.

The statement reads, “Suffice it to say that arrangements to transfer Debola to the reputable Great Ormond Street Hospital in the UK had been carried to the final stages by the hospital management before he passed on yesterday.

“We are hopeful that the appropriate professional body will eventually step in to unravel the circumstances of Adebola’s death.”
