Insufficient medical supplies restrain treatment of Yola bomb blast victims

The lack of medical supplies at the Yola specialist hospital as well as other state owned hospitals is restraining the treatment of victims of the Tuesday Bomb blast in Yola, Adamawa state. Many of the over 80 people who sustained injuries from the attack are yet to receive adequate medical attention due to lack of medical supplies.



One of the victims who refused to state her name said “After I paid N1000, they did an x-ray and said there is a metal inside my wound, however, nothing has happened since then”.

Another of the victims seen on his Hospital bed said he was only given “two tablets and one injection since last night. Since they brought me yesterday, I was just given Tetanus injection and two tablets of Paracetamol, he said as he writhed in pains. “You can see blood is still dripping from my wounds.

It was also gathered that the Speaker of Adamawa State House of Assembly on Wednesday led some of the lawmakers on a visit to the victims of the blast. Victims said the lawmaker did not, however, make any pledge of assistance on behalf of the state government.
