Mr. Hassan Abiodun’s death last Friday remains shrouded in mystery.
“No health issues, phenomenal athlete, came to work every day — just as healthy as can be,” said a colleague at the office of the Deputy Speaker.
Contrary to reports in the media, money played no part in his death, regarded as sudden by close associates.
Speaking to Per Second News Thursday in Washington, Dr Mark Simmons revealed that fit young people are still dying of appendicitis because doctors sometimes fail to recognise the symptoms, according to an authoritative report into hospital deaths.
“Appendicitis diagnosis requires skill and experience. Hospitals should ensure that those seeing potential cases either have the requisite skills and experience or are supported by those who do.”
He said recently a fit young man of 32 went to his physician with abdominal pain and vomiting, but the physician thought he had gastroentiritis. He arrived in hospital after seven days of symptoms, was operated on to remove the appendix but suffered septic shock. He died of a major heart attack the following day in intensive care.
Following his death, some family members and colleagues said bad health management at the medical facility might be a factor, while others attribute the media outcry to a serving governor of one of the southwest state in a bid to embarrass the deputy speaker.
The deceased left behind a pregnant wife.
