Panel releases findings on Vwaere Diaso’s death

The Lagos chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) says the elevator that caused the death of Vwaere Diaso, at the General Hospital, Lagos Island, was not fit for use.

The association had inaugurated a panel to investigate the circumstances that led to the death of Diaso, a medical doctor, who was undertaking her housemanship at the hospital.

The 11-member panel comprises an independent committee of doctors, lawyers and engineers, chaired by Saheed Babajide.

The elevator fell from the 10th floor of the building while Diaso was inside it. She sustained various degrees of injuries and was confirmed dead at a hospital.
