He responded to falz earlier statement about the non challant attitude hospital’s treat emergency case patients.
If somebody has a gunshot wound and they are brought to your hospital, you are supposed to treat them, not ask for any f*cking police report. Even if na suspected armed robber, Who are you to deprive them of the right to stay alive? Let the court pass judgment.

Dr. Etin-osa Imagbenikaro who is taking up the case, has given update on the Lady, and according to him, the Hospital actually Attended to Linda Igwetu immiediately she was brought in, and there was no demand of Police reports because the police officers were also present at the hospital.
And there was no delay in Treating her, But the problem was that she had already bled way too much, and had a low heart rate.
When all efforts proved abortive, at about 3am a Consultant was called to resuscitate her, but it was too late, as her pulse wasn’t responding anymore.
Find excerpt of the tweet below:
Sir, we didn't ask for a police report.
She was attended to promptly as soon as she was brought in. A chest tube was passed and she had 2 pints of blood transfused even without opening a folder or anyone donating blood. This is asides other measures taken to save her life.
