She died from injuries sustained when an elevator she was in crashed and all efforts to resuscitate her failed as there was no blood available in the Lagos State health facility.


Utuama in a press statement issued on Thursday at Asaba described the incident as painful, unfortunate, sad and upsetting.

While appealing to the Lagos State Government to as a matter of urgency commence maintenance of the health facilities on the Island, Utuama called for in-depth investigation into the cause of death of the young Delta born medical doctor.
