Lawrence Aletile, Nigerian comedian better known as Seyi Law, has narrated how his aunt died shortly after an accident at an Ondo hospital “due to lack of equipment”.
The gifted comedian broke the sad news in a video on his Instagram page on Monday where he can be seen fighting off tears intermittently.
Law bemoaned the condition of health facilities at the Igbokoda general hospital in Ilaje local government area of the state, where the deceased breathed her last.
He also pleaded with Rotimi Akeredolu, the state governor, to put in place necessary facilities to protect the lives of citizens in the area.
“Your excellency, this is not a fight with you, it’s just stating the truth. This morning, my mum’s younger sister had an accident and they didn’t have the right equipment to take care of her at Igbokoda general hospital,” he said in the video.
