A secondary school teacher in Anambra state has called on the state governor, Chukwuma Soludo, Nigerian Medical Association, (NMA), and human rights organization, among others, to come to her rescue after an Onitsha-based medical doctor, Dr. Walter Igbokwe, dragged her to a shrine over unpaid medical bills.
According to the teacher identified as Chukwuka, her ailing mother was admitted to Igbokwe’s hospital, and upon discovering that she wasn’t responding to treatment, she decided to take her to a better hospital. However, the doctor insisted that she clears the medical bill which amounted to N600,000.
She explained that she was unable to pay the bill and as a condition to let her leave the hospital with her mother, the doctor insisted on having a written and signed agreement which she signed under duress.
Unable to pay the debt, Mrs. Chukwuka revealed that she has been subjected to inhuman treatment, humiliation, insults, intimidations, and threats by Dr. Igbokwe who allegedly reported the case to several shrines including Omaliko Idemili deity. She added that she has refused to honor the invitations of the deities because it is against her faith as a Christian and is calling on the appropriate authorities to intervene as she insists she was coerced into signing the agreement.
Reacting to the report, Dr. Igbokwe, denied all allegations stating that he never dragged Chukwuka to any deity but admitted that one could use any means to recover his money. He added that Chukwuka has not been answering his calls and maintained that they had an agreement that was signed by both parties after he had provided medical care to her mother without an initial deposit.
