Onitsha - A man has abandoned his wife Mrs Uzoamaka Onu at
the New Mayor Hospital and Fertility Centre, Nkpor, Anambra State after a
breast cancer surgery.
The situation, according to Vanguard, has seen the 39
year-old woman remain in the hospital for four months over non-payment of
hospital bill of over N520 000.
Uzoamaka said her husband stopped visiting the hospital
after she successfully underwent a surgery on her right breast and all attempts
to reach him have proved abortive.
