Report Shows Injection Nurse Feyisayo Ogedengbe Gave To Mohbad Has Caused The Death Of Many In The Past
As the Nigeria Police Force, Lagos State Command continues its investigation into the death of Afro hip hop singer, Mohbad, reports show that one of the injections nurse Feyisayo Ogedengbe administered on Mohbad during his travail, has caused the death of many in the past.
The Lagos State Police Command Commissioner, Idowu Owohunwa had in a press conference, revealed that nurse Feyisayo Ogedengbe administered the following medications on late Mohbad: 1 Pack of Ceftriaxone injection; 1 Vial Paracetamol injection, Tetanus Toxoid injection, 1 Vial Procaine Penicillin, 7 ampules of IM Diclofenac, Tincture Iodine.
However, reports show that Ceftriaxone which is one of the injections nurse Feyisayo Ogedengbe used in treating Mohbad before his passing, has been linked to death of many who were treated with it.
The United States Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) in 2012 banned the use of Ceftriaxone in treating humans as well as animals. The US ban on use of Ceftriaxone happened after Canadian authority had done so. The reason giving for its ban is partially attributed to its high likelihood of misuse due to high utilization.
Studies also show that improper use of Ceftriaxone could negatively affect productivity, reduce microbial antagonism, and in severer cases, lead to death.
“Inappropriate use of antibiotics such as ceftriaxone accelerates the emergence of antimicrobial resistance, increases costs of treatment, affects productivity, and exposes patients to unnecessary side effects, and can also result in death”, review from research on the use Ceftriaxone carried out in Uganda.
