One year old baby passed away yesterday night in Otukpo town of Benue State after his parent refused to take him to hospital but prefer prayer house. The child’s mother died during childbirth and the family believed she died due to spiritual attack and the same thing was responsible for the illness of the baby.
The Director of an NGO, GIPLC, Mr. Nuhu Kwajaffa, who heard the story asked that the parent should take the child to hospital and that GIPLC would foot all the bills, but the parent refused, preferring to take the child to a prayer house.
Jerome Orinya who went to see the family to convince them to take the child to hospital and that GIPLC would foot all the bill confirmed to NEWISSUES Magazine that the child passed away yesterday night.
The one day old was finding it difficult to breath in a video sent to NEWISSUES.
