Abuja - Medical professionals at the Nizamiye Hospital in Abuja have revealed that the first son of Senator Stella Oduah, Maxwell Omabuwa Chinedu Etoromi, died after suffering a brain hemorrhage.
the 28-year-old graduated from Guildford College in the UK, was said to have been admitted into their care from another hospital-Zankli Medical Centre-, but died almost immediately.
“Despite our best efforts he died in our care just 30 minutes after we admitted him. We could not do anything to revive him because he arrived in a coma. We tried cardiac life support, but it was too late by the time he arrived," according to doctors who spoke with SaharaReporters
Etoromi arrived at their health facility with a “subarachnoid hemorrhage” on Thursday evening around 6pm and was already in the worst stage of coma possible, he died some 30 minutes later according to a doctor.
Subarachnoid hemorrhaging can have several causes, including a traumatic head injury, a bleeding disorder, or the incorrect use of blood thinning medication.
The medical doctors said they were in no position to immediately declare the cause of Etoromi’s death, but said they just issued a death certificate in which they reported that that he had significant hemorrhaging.
Oduah served in the Goodluck Jonathan administration as a Minister of Aviation before running for a seat in the Nigerian Senate.
In a barely audible voice, she confirmed the report, saying her son died after a brief illness according to Punch.
One of Oduah’s colleagues, Senator Uche Ekwunife, who represents Anambra Central in the Senate, also confirmed the incident to one of our correspondents, saying she had been with Oduah to console her just like few other senators who heard about the “unfortunate situation.”
