    Doctor jailed for Obasanjo death

    Stella Obasanjo was considered Olusegun's official wife

    By Steve Kingstone
    BBC News, Madrid ​


    A Spanish doctor has been sentenced to a year in prison, for his role in the death of the former first-lady of Nigeria, Stella Obasanjo. The wife of Olusegun Obasanjo had visited a clinic in Marbella in October 2005 to undergo cosmetic surgery. She underwent liposuction to reduce the size of her abdomen, but left the operating theatre with fatal injuries.

    The judges said the surgeon had shown carelessness and neglect.

    Mrs Obasanjo, 59, came to Spain in October 2005, checking in at the Molding Clinic - a discreet and luxury facility, specialising in cosmetic surgery.

    The court heard that a tube used for removing fat had been placed by mistake into the patient's abdominal cavity - puncturing her colon and lacerating her liver.

    Mrs Obasanjo became seriously ill the following day.

    But prosecutors said the surgeon initially failed to answer his mobile phone, and then waited more than four hours before driving the patient in his own car to an intensive care unit, where she died an hour later.

    The doctor - identified in court documents only by the initials AM - was sentenced to a year's imprisonment for causing homicide through negligence.

    He was disqualified from practising medicine for three years, and ordered to pay $176,000 (£108,000) in compensation to Mrs Obasanjo's son.

    The court said simple blood tests or an ultrasound procedure would have detected the internal injuries - which, with more time, could have been treated.

    I wonder how they got to the $176,000 compensation figure. Is this
    the 'price' of Madam Obasanjo's head?...Hii bei mbuzi sana na naomba
    isiwe kama kiashirio cha 'bei' ya huyu mama marehemu.

    Nadhani hapa itabidi kuangalia kwa undani sheria yao ya negligence, and recoverable damages. Unaweza kukuta wana a limit na wamefuata norm precedents. Lakini hii haina maana kuwa ndo 'price yake'. Nothing can be used to determine the value of a human being.

    If people are ugly,they should have no children,or maybe just have one child. That would be a way to improve the human stock
    If a person is ugly,he should marry a beautiful girl. If someone does not like his dark skin,he must marry a light-skinned girl.
    And then,we will not have this sad incident which happenned to 'Obasanjo.'
    Obscene amounts of money are being used in cosmestics,and cosmestic surgery.

    Ganesh,
    What you say maybe true. But you are forgetting one thing about our genetics. You may marry a beautiful wife who had an ugly grandmother and your daughter may turn out to look exactly like her grandmother. Think about that.

    Nyie mnaoponda wake za wengine...eleweni uzuri ni subjective.Unayemuona mzuri wenzio waweza kumwona si mali kitu.Mama Obasanjo alitaka kupunguza mafuta tumboni na siyo kukarabati sura mbaya jamani.Mwacheni a RIP.

    VeraCity,

    while I agree with you to a bigger extent lakini in some cases we make
    exceptions. Hebu niambie subjectivity iko wapi hapa...

    "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them" (Genesis 1:27)

    To classfy human as ugly or beautful is an insult to our creator! we are all an image of GOD!
