Doctors Stabilise Feyi Agagu, Move Him To New Ward


Doctors at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH, are battling to save the life of Feyi Agagu, the son of the late governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Agagu, who was involved in a plane crash on Thursday morning as he and others were taking his father’s corpse for burial.

According to PM News, Feyi was earlier today being moved from the surgical emergency ward in LASUTH to the more comfortable Bola Ahmed Tinubu ward where he would have a better chance of survival.

Doctors who spoke on condition of anonymity all confirmed that Agagu’s son would receive better medical attention at the new ward which boasts of more medical personnel and state-of-the-art equipment.

“There are more staff there, more modern equipment and they will be able to monitor him every minute. He has a better chance of survival there,” a doctor said pleading not to be quoted because she is not authorised to speak with reporters.

Feyi was not unconscious and could recognise family members and friends who were in the hospital today. But he was weak, did not speak and seemed to be under pains. He tried painfully to make a sign to his relatives but his hand came down almost immediately.

Feyi was among the lucky seven survivors who are receiving treatment in three hospitals in Lagos.

Five of those who are receiving treatment are in LASUTH while one is at the Airforce medical centre and the other is in Gbagada General Hospital, said Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jide Idris, who visited the survivors on Friday morning.

Idris said he was satisfied with the level of attention the patients were receiving. He said one of the survivors had a surgery on Thursday night and three were doing well and one is in critical condition.

He did not say whether it was Agagu’s son or another survivor he was referring to.
