Also, The Health Pilot Limited had on May 06,2017 reported that Dr Florence Onua was at the verge of being kidnapped on the previous day. As the kidnappers could not successfully kidnap her, they shot at her sporadically . The scene was at her residence at G.R.A. phase two, Port Harcourt and it occurred around 8:00pm on Friday,5th May 2017.She was immediately rushed to a private hospital in Port Harcourt where Haemostasis was apparently achieved. She requested that she be referred to the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital(UPTH) where her husband works.As at the time of leaving the Private hospital for UPTH,she was fully conscious and alert with Glasgow Coma Scale of 15/15,well oriented in time,person and place. She arrived UPTH at about 11:00 pm same day. She was co-managed by the Orthopaedic and General Surgery Units of the hospice,with intermittent suggestions from the Medical Team on Call ( MTOC). The consultants whose units managed the patient were on ground to ensure water-tight medical care.Our reporter gathered that she was immediately transferred to the Main Theatre as the Accident and Emergency Theatre could not play host to such procedure. There was an unconfirmed report that another emergency ( ruptured ectopic pregnancy) was temporarily delayed in order to give late Dr Florence Onua an undivided medical attention in the spirit of camaraderie.
However, the UPTH management at about 11:00 am on Saturday,06/05/17 officially confirmed her death post-operatively. Doctors in Rivers state seem to have once again been targeted by these kidnappers reminiscing the ugly incidents of late 2014 and early 2015 when the doctors took to the street to protest such ugly scenario.
Meanwhile ,While Dr Florence Onua’s burial arrangements are on ,another medical doctor, Dr Chidi Odumegwu , is lying in the morgue courtesy of the dastardly activities of other rampaging hoodlums in Port Harcourt.
