Her 60-year-old husband, Arlindo Defreitas, who is suspecting foul-play, alleged that the Doctors at at the Medical Art Center (MART) located at Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, Onigbongbo, Lagos, where he took his wife to, butchered his wife. According to him, the death of his wife made him understand why Buhari had to seek medical care abroad.
Here's what he said;
“When I entered the theater all her organs was scattered around, I couldn’t look , it was like the work of a butcher.
“Last week Friday at 41 weeks of pregnancy, doctors at the hospital told us that no baby water was seen and as a result a cesarean section operation must be done as soon as possible.
The procedure was done and the baby was delivered by 8.30 am on Saturday, and we were very happy- for a short time.
“I was very happy even though the baby almost died as I was told by the doctors that the baby was almost ‘strangled’ by the umbilical cord, the head was red and one arm was white, the skin was very wrinkled.
“My wife was moved out of the theater and transferred to a private room to recuperate”‘ At some point she was in excruciating pain, and the doctors kept giving her doses upon doses of pain killers.
“I was uncomfortable and I told them that from my experience as a medical student years ago I think my wife hemorrhaged.
“I was asked to leave and wait for a call before coming back, so I went home”.
“Hours later the doctors said they have to cut her open again to find out what was going on with her, Klimek said in shock. At that point the husband said he was told that she has low blood a 12.7% packed cell volume (PCV).
” I said why can’t you use ultrasonic Tools and scans to see what’s going on, instead of cutting her open again and allowing her lose more blood which is already a problem”.
“By the time I got to the hospital, they already cut her open for the second surgery, they opened her thorax from under the breast down – and finally, they found nothing after 4 hours of operation.
“I was an emotional wreck by this point.
I never gave consent for the second surgery, nobody in my wife’s family did. Until this moment cause of death is still unknown”.
“I don´t understand this doctors and hospitals. This “Photoshop certificate Doctor” killed our best friend and for this he must be imprisoned for life and the MART Hospital shut down for ever. And none of this doctor or nurses must practice in this profession again" said an angry Klimek, friend of the husband.
” I am from Germany and when this things happen in Germany or Europe, the government conduct an investigation, I hope, this will be the same here, he asked.The husband of the deceased claim that one Dr Moses butchered his wife to death, “yes Moses killed my wife”. ” After they noticed their mistake they refuse to tell me details, I called them continuously and they won’t pick my phone”.
“Now I can understand, why your president went to medical check up outside of Nigeria, he concluded.
On his own MART MEDICARE Chief Medical Officer Dr Makewu, said that with the help of fertility doctors from the MART Center, Amaka Defeitas, conceived using IVF, after which we had a meeting with the couple detailing a 13 week management plan that includes C-section at birth.
“Mr Defreitas rejected the C-section saying he wanted his wife to have it the natural way, despite several medical advice from us.
“At 37 weeks there was no sign of labor and they were still insisting on natural means. I didn’t see them or hear from them again until I called them at 39 weeks and she said she travelled and was not around.
They finally came when the pregnancy was at 41 weeks, after a scan no baby water was seen at that point I told them categorically that a C-Section must be done immediately.
“We did the procedure and the baby arrived Saturday morning, except for the umbilical cord that was around the baby’s neck, everything was fine, both mother and baby were fine and we even moved her out of the theater to the normal room for her to recuperate.
“Hours after the first surgery she started complaining of tummy ache and severe pain, despite the pain killers being administered on her, she also complained of abdominal pain.Asked about cause of death, he said autopsy is currently being carried out. But Mr Defeitas insists that it was an error on the part of the doctors to cut his wife open for the second time within a 24 hour period.
“She was pale and we ran a test and found out that her blood level was 12.7 percent low, at that point we did the second surgery to find out what was the cause of pain”. Dr Makewu put the blame at the doorsteps of the Defeitas, saying the operation should have been done weeks before the 41 week period.
Justifying his claim, Defreitas, said he did not give his consent for the second surgery because he expected the hospital to do a comprehensive CT-Scan of the Pelvic & Abdomen to get the right diagnosis, rather the doctors did a normal blood test which will never tell you if a patient has a blood clot or something more fatal.
“I insisted in scan but before I arrived at the hospital they already cut her open and allowing her to lose more blood leading to her death”.
A doctor close to the family said "Possibly she bled a lot at first surgery, maybe the womb did not contract well also”. “She could also have had a DIC (Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation) an acquired bleeding disorder from too much blood loss, which makes it impossible for the body to stop further blood loss”.
Defreitas, a retired professional with Lufthansa, German airline opened up in a lengthy discussion with Per Second News about living with the heartbreaking loss of his wife, Amaka, an Imo state indigene.
The family are still in shock and traumatized over the mysterious death of Amaka Defeitas, wit the husband demanding that an independent postmortem be done on the remains of his wife.
“We travelled all over the world together and looking forward to spending our lives in Nigeria, its so sad, I don’t know what to do next”.
Speaking with Per Second News Dr Tiffany Jones, a US based obstetrician, said the case of the late Amaka Defreitas, is both pathetic and curious, wondering the rationale for making her go under the knife within 24 hours after the C-Section. She said the most common reason women die during C-sections is bleeding. Bleeding can be fast and severe and by the time any medical protocol can be instituted, sometimes it’s just too late.
“That is why I believe the second surgery was not necessary”.
“Other C-section complications include bladder injury, infection, bowel injuries and blood clots, which can sometimes result in pulmonary embolisms. A pulmonary embolism is a potentially fatal blockage of the main artery of the lung by a substance that has traveled from somewhere else in the body.”
