A 22 year old systems engineer David Ntekim-Rex was neglected and left to die by police and medical staff after he had been shot by armed robbers around Jibowu area of Lagos.
David graduated from the University of Lagos in 2019.
According to a relative who tweeted this story, the award winning systems wiz had been heading home when he was shot by robbers. Despite the police arriving on the scene monents later, they showed no interests in helping the victim and instead focused on his belongings.
David was taken to the military hospital around the area, the nurses ignored him. The doctor came around and kept asking who they all were. It took a senior nurse to come out and start checking for a pulse. He had lost a lot of blood at this point.— Roy Mustang (@Magnanimous__) January 17, 2021
David wasn't attended to by the doctors at LUTH. He was there till the family was convinced he couldn't be alive because he had no pulse. The doctors refused to administer any test to see if he was alive.— Roy Mustang (@Magnanimous__) January 17, 2021
The country failed David.— Roy Mustang (@Magnanimous__) January 17, 2021
The doctors failed David.
The police failed David.
The system failed David.
Rest in peace David Ntekim-Rex.
