Lagos State govt shuts down hospital over woman’s death at childbirth

The Lagos State government has shut down Medville Global Health Center at Ago Palace way in Okota area of Lagos State.

This was taken after one Chibuike Nwachukwu accused the hospital of being responsible for the death of his wife during childbirth.

The Executive Secretary of the Health Facility Monitoring and Accreditation Agency (HEFAMAA), Abiola Idowu, in a statement said preliminary investigations by the team disclosed that Medville hospital was not registered with HEFAMAA, and had inadequate personnel.
