An 18-year-old nursing mother, Toyin Oluwagbemiga and her infant have been detained at the Trinity Hospital in the Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State for the past five months.

According to reports, Toyin was put in the family way by one Joshua Cole, immediately after her Senior School Certificate Examination she, however, developed some complications during delivery, which took her to the Ekuigbo Community Health Centre in Ughelli.

With her condition perceived as critical, she was referred to the Ughelli Central Hospital, but her parents rushed her to Trinity Hospital, a nearby private health facility in Ughelli, where she eventually received care.

Unfortunately for Toyin, her parents absconded after the completion of a Caesarean section (CS) leaving her with the burden of medical bills.

She is appealing to the Delta State Governor, and other spirited individuals to come to her aid, as she was held by the hospital management after she failed to make payment of her N537,800 medical bills.
