Husband Allegedly Abandoned Wife In Lagos Hospital, ‘Used Money For CS To Buy Phone, Dog’


The husband of a Nigerian woman who recently gave birth has been accused of abandoning her in the hospital after using the money meant for her Cesarean section to purchase a new phone and a dog.

Taking to social media, @Pharm_prenuer shared her distressing story and pleaded for assistance while she continues to fight for her life.

Prior to giving birth, she experienced difficulty breathing and was advised by medical professionals to undergo a Cesarean section.

Despite receiving a generous donation of N500K from a kind-hearted individual, her husband allegedly spent 180K of the funds on personal items instead of supporting her during this critical time.

“Dear Twitter Nigeria, I am appealing to you all for your help to save my life to stay alive to nurse my new born child. I got traditionally married recently and took in. I thought that was the best thing that happened to me, everything was going well until I entered 35th week.

“I suddenly developed shortness of breath; I could barely walk 2secs without being out of breath. Thinking it was one of those symptoms of late pregnancy, I didn’t take it seriously until the 14th of April when I could barely breath, I couldn’t lift my head up.

“I was rushed to a nearby clinic, they couldn’t handle me, so I was taken to my hospital where I was admitted and placed on oxygen. They Drs told my husband we should opt for CS, as I and my unborn child were at husband said no, that I’d definitely deliver naturally.

“He insisted he had no money for CS, they should work on stabilizing my breathing…so for three days, I was on oxygen and feeling better, seeing that I was responding to treatment, my husband went around and insisted I should be discharged against Drs advice.

“It almost became an issue, I was too weak to argue with him, he insisted on discharge so I was discharged early the next morning. A few hours after we arrive home, the breathing problems started again. I struggled with it, this man went and bought Agbo from one Yoruba woman.

“Told me to drink, it would make my baby turn it’s head for natural delivery, the other Agbo could make my cervix slippery. i was in so much pain that I drank only for the pain to intensify. I struggled so much till about 1am in the morning when I couldn’t take it anymore.

“I cried out, my neighbors came running and I was again rushed to the hospital, admitted and placed on oxygen while my Drs determine what to be done, my husband insisted he had no money for CS..all these while I was spending my life’s savings on medications, this and that tests.

“This dragged on until the morning of 29th April, I was broked,my baby wasn’t moving, my breathing wasn’t good, I can’t pushed and my baby’s position was beached. I cried out on Facebook where a kind Samaritan sent me 500k to pay for CS and whatever else I might need afterwards.

“I immediately sent the sum of 180k and an additional 60k so he could pay for the surgery and whatever we might need.

He took the money and spent it instead on a phone and bought a dog.

While I was battling with life, thinking he was paying.

We waited from 10am when I gave him.

In a recent update, she expressed her thanks for receiving three times the requested amount, surpassing her bank’s transaction limit.

She wrote, “I’m short of words… I’ve raised thrice the needed amount until my Palmpay can’t receive funds anymore due to transaction limits. Dear kind-hearted Nigerians, I don’t know where to start thanking you. Please, it’s enough; it’s too much for me to process. Thank you so much.”

The young mother is filled with gratitude due to the generous donations, showcasing the kindness and compassion of Nigerians who united to assist her during her time of need
