Ghanaian actor Samuel Seth Karikari better known as Koo Ofori, has narrated what actually caused the death of his wife and his narration points out to the negligence of a doctor.
As stated by the Ghanaian actor whose wife met her untimely death in 2010, a medical doctor left one of the medical tools used for a Cesarean Section (CS) in her stomach after they had succeeded in taking out the baby.
The actor born eventually revealed the cause of his wife’s death when called in into Angel FM’s #PatientLivesMatter segment of the Morning Show, Anopa Bofo on Monday.
“A similar thing happened and for six days, my wife couldn’t go to the toilet and she was having a swelling stomach so she went back to the hospital where the CS was performed but because the doctor knew of the mistake he had done, he neglected her, they were not attending to her and that led to her death…,” he told Captain Smart, host of the show.
At the time of Mrs Mary Karikari death in August 2010, it was alleged she suffered complications from her delivery.
The actor also indicated that some medical doctors at the facility subsequently approached investigating police officers and convinced him to withdraw a legal action he was pursuing against them.
“Like the woman in the studio was talking about the doctor neglecting her and that is exactly what they do, they always don’t want to betray their colleague so they had to call the CID who was investigating the case to talk to me about the issue so I drop it…,” he said.
The actor, who is advocating for health practitioners to be held responsible for acts like these when he said that “the so-called professionals kill us but] instead of them to correct their negligence, the try to hide it under the carpet” he added that “over 12 people have come to me with the same case, so we need to expose them.”
