Month-old-baby abandoned in Warri Private Hospital hospital over outrageous bill

A 25-year old woman simply identified as Tony Okiemute has abandoned a month-old-baby in St. George’s Specialist Clinic and Maternity over her inability to pay for her medical bills in Warri, Delta State, Daily Post reports. Administrative Manager of St. George’s Specialist Clinic & Maternity, Mr. Sunny Ebone made this known while rushing the baby girl in company of some Social Welfare Officers to the police “B” Division in Warri to get police extract yesterday.

He noted that all efforts to trace and track the woman who claimed to be resident of Ekakoto Street in Orhunwhorhun Community in Udu Local Government were unsuccessful as before he decided to take the child to the police station.

Meanwhile it was gathered that the lady was given a bill of N125,000 which should could not

Pained by the development, the Divisional Police Officer, “B” Division CSP Anieteh Eyoh who declined comments on the matter ordered his men to track the parents of the abandoned baby in order to save the child.


  1. A Government hospital will never deliver a baby by cesarean unless that's the only option. If you know you cannot afford all those outrageous bills, go to Government hospitals. They may not have drugs for you, they prescribe and you buy outside but they have many Doctors and qualified nurses available.

    Private clinics will put you through CS to increase their bills, they manage when the real Doctor is not there, they deceive you sometimes and no one is held accountable. Attend ante natal in Government hospitals where you get to meet and connect with other pregnant mums and learn.
    Honestly, if this Okiemute woman went to a General hospital, her story will be different, maybe her baby boy will be alive with her and maybe her bill won't even be half of this heavy amount. Advise yourself.

  2. Pathetic!
