Nigerian Doctor Tragically Dies in Hospital Elevator Accident

In a heartbreaking incident at General Hospital Odan in Lagos Island, a young Nigerian doctor named Vwaere lost her life in a devastating elevator accident.


The incident occurred just days before she was set to complete her housemanship, leaving her friends, family, and colleagues in shock and grief.

According to accounts on social media shared by friends of the deceased, the tragic event unfolded when Vwaere entered the hospital’s elevator to retrieve something from a dispatch rider waiting outside.

Shockingly, the elevator suddenly plunged from the 10th floor to the ground floor, resulting in severe injuries to the doctor.

To make matters worse, it was reported that it took the hospital authorities a whole hour before they were able to evacuate Vwaere’s body and rush her to emergency medical care.


Sadly, she succumbed to her injuries and passed away during the course of this delay.

One hospital staff member, who took to Twitter to express their grief and frustration, mentioned that the elevator had been known to have problems, and complaints from staff members had been raised about it in the past.

Despite these concerns, it appears that the hospital failed to take decisive action to address the issues, leading to this tragic loss of life.

As of the time of reporting, there have been no official statements from either the hospital management or the family of the deceased concerning the circumstances surrounding Vwaere’s death.

However, it is clear that this incident has left the medical community in mourning and raised serious questions about safety measures in the hospital.


Man Arrested for Killing Police Officer While Attempting to Flee

In another news report, the Ondo police command apprehended a 47-year-old man named Godson James for allegedly killing a police officer on the Ifon-Benin road in Ose LGA, Ondo State.

According to the police spokesperson, Funmilayo Odunlami, the suspect was attempting to evade arrest while being pursued by police officers.

The authorities had been alerted about a crime he committed in the state capital, Akure, which led to the pursuit.

However, during the suspect’s parading at the police headquarters in Akure, he claimed that he killed a “criminal” in self-defense and not a police officer.

The situation adds complexity to the case, and further investigations will be required to ascertain the truth behind the fatal encounter.


As the authorities delve into the circumstances surrounding this incident, the loss of the police officer’s life serves as a grim reminder of the dangers faced by law enforcement officers while on duty and underscores the importance of ensuring safety and security for all members of the community.
