A callous mother watched her three-year-old daughter die after she absconded with the money meant for her brain tumour surgery.
The nearly unbelievable story was shared on Facebook by Nymart Jamal, apparently one of the health practitioners of the facility where the girl was hospitalized pending her surgery.
She revealed on Facebook that the donor refused to pay the money to the NGO’S account due to undisclosed reasons but requested paying to the mother of the sick child’s account.
Moments after N3m (₵45,400) hit her account, she decided to ‘make good use of it’ at the expense of her dying child.
“Last month we had a case of a 3yr old girl with a brain tumor who needed N3m for surgery. A donor insisted on paying the money to the account of the mother, stating that he’s not comfortable with NGOs.
We initially wanted him to pay directly to the hospital, but that was not possible because 80% of the medical materials needed for the surgery has to be bought outside the hospital. Eventually, the donor credited the mother’s account, and the mother absconded with the N3m. Sadly, the child died this morning. Rest In Peace Ada”.
