Madalla bomb victims lament poor treatment

At the National Hospital, Abuja, where some victims of the Madalla bomb blast were taken, two persons in a critical state were reportedly lying on the corridors of the Emergency Unit. The victims, a female and a male, were reeling in pains on beds while waiting to be taken to the ward. Some of the relations told journalists that they were not satisfied with the treatment meted out to them, especially the manner of response to the wounded victims of the bomb explosion. However, the authorities of the National Hospital said they were prepared to give the best medical treatment to the bomb blast victims. The Public Relations Officer, Mr. Tayo Hastrup, said victims were under specialist care and would remain so until they are certified okay. He said the victims were being treated at the expense of the Federal Government and they were not expected to bear any cost themselves. More than 30 persons have been confirmed dead from the Christmas Day bomb attack on a Catholic church in Madalla, near Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal capital territory.
