A middle-aged-man, Sunday Samuel, has accused the Ondo State Trauma and Surgical Centre, Ondo Town, of negligence after his wife died during a surgical operation at the facility.

The deceased, Fola, was reportedly diagnosed with breast cancer.

The mother of four was thereafter placed on medication for about a month in the hospital ward before she was taken to the theatre for surgery on Monday, July 25.

According to her husband, the operation was disrupted by power outage, as the medical facility repeatedly switched between electricity and generator.

He also lamented that the hospital failed to provide a standby oxygen cylinder before embarking on the surgery, as none was available when they needed it during the operation.
