The management of Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso, has disclosed that the hospital did its best before transferring the late chairman of Ejigbo Local Government Area of Osun State, Mr. Gbenga Ayegbayo, to the University College Hospital, Ibadan where he died.

The Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee of the hospital, Dr. Michael Onigbinde, revealed this in a statement on Wednesday.

The Chairman confirmed that the LG boss was brought to the hospital on Friday, April 3, 2020, but denied the allegations leveled against the hospital over the death of the LG boss.



He stressed further that all necessary medical attention was given to the patient before he was referred to the UCH, Ibadan when the need for him to see a particular specialist arose.

“Before the plan for a referral was concluded, a call was put through to the patient’s managing consultant ( name withheld ) at the UCH who gave a marching order for the patient to be transferred to UCH forthwith. The said managing consultant instructed that he should be called upon immediately on arrival.

“It was at this point that the patient was transferred to UCH for further medical attention. But unfortunately, upon arrival at UCH, the LG boss was not allowed entry into the Accident and Emergency Unit by the doctors on duty even after the managing consultant intervened,” he said.

He also noted that the doctors on duty at the Accident and Emergency Unit of the hospital held that the patient would not be allowed entry until a certificate showing that the patient was either negative or positive for COVID- 19 was presented.

He added that the LG boss was not tested before being moved to UCH because LAUTECH was not a designated center for COVID- 19 testing.
