When her body arrived at the Vaults and Gardens, a private section of the Port Harcourt Cemetery, Bishop Chris Ebata presided over a brief funeral service.

Mr. Sekidika reiterated his call for justice, stating that the “negligence and incompetence” of the medical staff that carried out the treatment on his daughter was the reason she died.

“This is a loss we will mourn for the rest of our lives. Instead of a marriage certificate, it is a death certificate I got.

“On that fateful day, she went to the hospital hale and hearty just to go for something she too said was a simple procedure. But due to the negligence of people she died from a procedure that didn’t require surgery,” he said.
