Ras Kimono’s son shares heartbreaking details on mum’s final moments
Stepson of the late Nigerian reggae legend Ras Kimono has revealed how his mother died.
The wife of the late reggae icon died three months after his death under strange circumstance.
According to Onome Akpobome, stepson of the late reggae icon, his mother was well prior to bed time.
Speaking exclusively to the NET, he revealed that, his mum had complained of mild chest pain. She went to three hospitals but was turned away. He believes, that could have led to his mother’s death.
“On Saturday, we went to the beach to clebrate my uncle’s birthday. Nothing went wrong until about 2 a.m. She went upstairs and started complaining of chest pain. At this point, she started breathing awkwardly…”
“We could not get help from the first hospital so we drove to County Hospital. A doctor checked her pulse and said she was still breathing, but they had no facilities to treat her. So he referred us to Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) in Ikeja.”
“The pain is worse for me because none of the three hospitals treated the case as an emergency. In fact, I have given up on Nigeria because they all had up to three hours to save my mum. How can over three hospitals in Lagos not have the right facilities to treat breathing problems? None of them even had a stretcher; I am just totally done with this country.”
“It is even worse for me because this also happened last month to my friend who lost her sister due to wrong administration of drugs, how can over three hospitals in Lagos not have the right facility to treat breathing problems. This says a lot about the situation of the Health Sector of Nigeria as a country,” he said.
