As you read this story, Funke, the ex-wife of Afro beat maestro Femi Kuti is recuperating and resting after she suffered a frightening asthma attack, even as her family members are thanking God for saving Funke from the hands of a “clueless” and unnamed medical doctor.

This much was revealed by Funke’s social commentator mother, Laila St.Matthew-Daniel who narrated the ordeal her daughter went through on her social media page “Traumatic Medical drama for me today!

Some hospitals are death traps! My oldest daughter Funke had a terrible asthma attack this morning.”

In her narrative, the psychotherapist revealed that her daughter was first rushed to a clinic, who were clueless as to how to deal with the situation.

“Before they could even operate their oxygen, my daughter was going into spasms – at this panic point Oyinda shouted that they should get an oxygen ambulance to take her to St. Nicholas – the Dr, obviously relieved, agreed and arranged one.”

Thankfully, they got to the other clinic on time and treatment started. She went on to commend the hospital for their medical professionalism.

“She had to go through series of tests and though she had another relapse, she stabilized and is under admission overnight to observe her.”

In conclusion, she added that; “there are all sorts of medical assistance. Some hospitals are just for general practice and once a critical case comes they should refer! Not try to give treatment they can’t handle which could prove fatal for the patient. I thank God for His intervention today! I want to confirm that we do have good hospitals in Nigeria.”
