Seun Ajibulu, a school proprietor alleged the hospital of complicit in Folorunsho’s death.

Ajibulu, who claimed to be involved in the accident, which happened on 28 May 10, 2019 around Ikere-Ekiti, accused some staff of the hospital of neglecting the victim on the grounds that they had no hand gloves.

He told The Sun, “He (Folorunsho) was bleeding as a result of injuries he suffered in the accident and would need first aid treatment, even though he may need to be transferred to a facility with better requirements. But the staff on duty brought a stretcher but refused to bring out the accident victim on account of non-availability of hand gloves.

“One wonders when gloves become so expensive that a specialist hospital couldn’t make them available. With time fast running out, I, who was also involved in the accident but with minor injuries, had to personally bring out injured Folorunso and placed him on the stretcher. Again, the staff declined pushing the stretcher. It was made clear that no doctor was attached to the hospital.”
