The cocomplaintade, he insisted, was that his daughter was healthy, and had no medical condition but needed a test conducted on her to ascertain why she was experiencing delayed menstruation because she was billed to travel abroad.

“The complaint was that she had not seen her period for a while. So, she needed to know why it was so.

When she had the clinical visit, they subjected her to some tests, including a pregnancy test which came out to be all negative.

“But they told her to see a specialist to be sure. On the day of the appointment, they took her into the theatre and gave her an anaesanesthetic simple procedure that didn’t require surgery where she developed complications and died.

“She (Rebekah) was supposed to travel to the United Kingdom for her Masters and PhD programs was set, flight booked, tuition paid, everything arranged.”
