Ondo NAWOJ demands justice over missing placenta



The National Association Of Women Journalists, NAWOJ Ondo State chapter, has asked  that justice be served on those behind alleged missing of placenta of a new born baby at Emure-Ile Comprehensive Health Centre in Owo Local Government Area of the State.

While describing the ugly development as unprofessional, the women journalists maintained that no stone must be left unturned in getting to the root of the matter.

Two health workers and a security man have been apprehended in connection with the stolen placenta in the said hospital.

This came after family of the baby   raised alarm due to the failure of the health workers to hand the placenta over to them after delivery.

Ondo NAWOJ however frowned at the odd treatment meted out to the family going by the years they have been waiting for the fruit of the womb as the hospital officials also claimed that a dog entered the facility, and took away the placenta.

The Association called on the state government, relevant security agencies, and Ministry of health to urgently probe further into the issue, and bring perpetrators to book and get Justice for the innocent baby.
