The Middle Belt Forum (MBF) has revealed the circumstances surrounding the death of a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Obadiah Mailafia, on Sunday in Abuja alleging that he was shabbily treated by two hospitals, Daily Trust reports.

National Publicity Secretary of the forum, Dr Isuwa Dogo, in a statement, yesterday, Sunday 19th 2021 expressed sadness over the death of Mr Mailafia at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital Gwagwalada, Abuja, adding that it was shocking and a big blow.

The statement reads, “Arising from various inquiries from Nigerians over the circumstances of his death, the forum wishes to state as follows: That Dr Mailafia arrived Abuja last Sunday, September 12, 2021, from Akure (Ondo State) and was received at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport by his wife.

“On arrival at home, the wife noticed he was not in the best of health conditions and seemed to be suffering from malaria. After three days of treatment without signs of improvement, he went to the CBN Hospital on Friday September 17, 2021 where he was shabbily treated. It took the intervention of a senior medic who immediately placed him on oxygen and admitted him.

“Dr. Mailafia was later given the option of choosing three hospitals: Gwagwalada Hospital, National Hospital and EHA Clinics. The wife opted for the third choice. On arrival at the EHA Clinics, the wife was subjected to yet another moment of anxiety as it took a direct order from the top management of the hospital to accept him,” Dogo said.

He said that after few hours of treatment, the EHA Clinics told the wife that it was expedient to transfer the former CBN Deputy Governor to Gwagwalada as the clinic was not fully equipped to handle his case.

He said the deceased was moved to Gwagwalada where he drew his last breath.

Dogo said that the Forum is inspired by his unselfish disposition and contributions to national development and also remain proud of his footprints on the political, economic and social sands of the nation.
