There was confusion at Nnamdi Azikwe International field (NAIA), Abuja, following the death of a traveler at the domestic wing of the field.
The female traveler simply known as Mama Tobi was at the boarding area for her flight to lagos when the incident happened.
She was said to have slumped as a results of high blood pressure.
A lawyer, Felix Ashimole, said the lady died as medical personnel from the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) didn’t respond on time.
“Where is the money they claim was sunk into renovating the airport into world standard? For thirteen minutes, no FAAN medical personnel. She died in my hands and few others. A medical doctor on his way to Kano tried however as he finally said, “we lost her.”
“But she would’ve been saved, had FAAN provided basic insulin. She was diabetic. Her sugar went high; She entered coma; No medical attention; She saw the light and moved towards it. we kept calling her, Mama Tobi, Mama Tobi, don’t leave USA, wake up, good morning but spit trickled down, foams bubbled and i knew she had seen a better place and wouldn’t be coming back!
“FAAN and the entire airline staff on ground were stupidly acting as if è no concern them. They kept saying boarding and ne’er USED their speaker to raise if there’s any medical personnel on ground. Finally they brought an car from their fire fighting department, to require her remains away! ood night Mummy Tobi. Your country and countrymen, failed you,” the lawyer wrote in a social media post.
It was learnt that the remains of the deceased was taken to the NAF Medical Centre at the field.
