Frustrated HIV Patient Bathes Counsellor With Acid

 
On Friday Oct 21, 2011, the most unfortunate thing happened to a nurse at the Rivers State School of Health, Port harcourt. An HIV patient bathed his counsellor and staff of the health institution, Mrs Ibuwari George, in acid. 

The attacker (a man in his forties) had scheduled an appointment with his counsellor that day, for further counselling on the effects of the drugs he was taking, and not suspecting any ulterior motive, Mrs George, who is a counsellor for HIV infected mothers and children agreed to the session. A few minutes into the meeting, the dying HIV patient, without provocation, poured a whole tin of acid on the unsuspecting nurse. 


Prior to this unholy visit, the patient was said to have been calling and complaining of same feeling to which the innocent nurse had counseled him to keep faith with the prescribed drugs. He had earlier been certified sick with very low blood count after a test was conducted on him which prompted his being placed on drugs for boosting etc.
 
And since he was placed on blood boosting drugs, he was always calling and keeping his counselor posted on the developments but on this particular call, this wicked agent of death seeking for treatment of HIV infection, rather than make do with the nurse’s usual advice and encouragement went gagger, discharging a whole tin of acid on the unsuspecting nurse who is still hospitalized and writhing in pains.
 
Targeting his victim, the patient was said to have waited patiently until Mrs Ibuwari Geroge came back from her lunch break and while explaining to her how he had fared so far, suddenly opened a bag he carried and brought out a tin which he instantaneously discharged on her and which turned out to be acid.
 
Mrs Ibuwari shattered at this point, had a hell of raw deal with her clothes and parts of body torn. Largely affected were her chest and lower parts of her breasts.
 
In the midst of the commotion aroused, staff and other visitors attracted to the scene descended on the blood thirsty HIV patient and would have lynched him to death but for the quick intervention of rescuers.
 
He has since been handed over to the police.

now they will say the hiv has spread to his brain thus the reason for his behaviour. it is usual for angry patients in Naija to think they have the right to unleash their venom on healthcare providers. some jobs are just not worth all the stress.
i wish her speedy recovery

Linda,
What do you mean by:
*very low blood count, and
* drug for boosting. . .

I think your knowledge of health related matters is poor. Get a health adviser for your blog.

OR

Get in touch with me if you are unable to find one. I wont charge you for my services(montymyguy@yahoo.com)

@New High

You drunkard! You passed out last night :)
Are you high again on palm wine or just ganja? Linda is not the author of the article. The error, if any, are not hers. Free her or no more weed for you :)

Am not condoning what he did, however some nurses are outright nasty, rude,lack compassion,impatient and treat their patients not just HIV patients like lepers. We no longer have Nightingales. Who knows, she may have pushed a mad man to the limit. I may be wrong in her case.

@ New High...
It's interesting for you to sit on your high horse and critize Linda for sharing this news article to her blog readers...she is NOT responsible for the Nigerian journalist who murdered the English language just to make a buck or 2!
Maybe you should quit getting on your New High all the time!!!

the drugs he was taking must have had some weird side effect that made him go crzy, but its naija there can be no proper psych evaluation of this person, the first thing would have been to lynch him. Anyway i wish the nurse a speedy recovery.

Olubabafemi said...

@Anne, how on earth did u know dat? "...it wasn't written by Linda" my foot!
Were u wit her in d comfort of her whateva when she was uploading d article?

People will now run from HIV charities. He has ruined the woman's life forever.

@Olubabafemi, there is no link but the devil... He should rot in prison or die as soon as possible.

Can you blame people that take revenge sometimes? This man should be shot dead.

Yoruba people say: Ore ni won. Meaning: Charity has a limit.

Glad he didn't get her face, wish her a speedy recovery. I think the sale of acid in Nigeria needs to start being controlled, these acid attacks are becoming too rampant.

And perhaps the pictures should have been treated with a little more discretion, there are tools like gimp (free download) & paint (comes with most microsoft office software or windows) that could have been used to treat these pics with more delicateness...

I wonder @ how someone will be more interested in Linda's health knowledge instead of making comment that should make sense...
Mstheewww!
Linda good work pls carry on...
I pray God help the Nurse and the HIV patient

I see that olubabafemi has learnt the cuss word "retarded" after another commenter called him that in the obiwon wedding post and figured he should some how utilize his newly learnt word. Dude, get a life please. No thanks to internet cafes, every unenlighthened idiot can now access the internet, log unto Linda's blog and talk shit. Nigga go sit your ass down and stop trying so hard to talk shit about everyone's comment. Say what you feel about the topic at hand and move on. Ain't nobody intimidated by a faggot internet bully like you.
