While further speaking about her husband’s death she said, “All through my recovery at the hospital, they never came to check on me. The hospital I was admitted was close to the police station where the drunk driver was detained, they paid him regular visits and fed him without bothering to check on my well-being. I was in a coma and they never stopped by. Even when it came to the N1m, they couldn’t tell me directly but had to go through my husband’s younger brother.”
