A consultant at the Federal Teaching Hospital Abakiliki FETHA, Dr Canice Ebirim has just died while watching the Super Eagles match against Argentina.
While confirming the news, the Chief Medical Director (CMD), of the hospital, Emeka Ogah, said Ebirim died within the period of the match.
According to him, a friend of the deceased revealed that he started behaving funny within that period.
“Ebirim’s friend said that the deceased started moving suspiciously and solicited for assistance which made him intervene and took him (Ebirim) to the hospital.
Efforts made to revive him at our hospital proved abortive as he died but we would liaise with his family to conduct an autopsy.
We are surprised at his death because he consulted at the hospital on Tuesdays. We have to wait till autopsy is conducted to draw further conclusions,” he said.
