Unfortunately she died because her husband, despite his efforts to withdraw money from the bank and other terminals, was unable unsuccessful.
The grieving man said he went with his wife to the hospital on Monday where the doctor asked him to deposit money before he could examine her.
He narrated; “I ran to my bank to withdraw money, but was told no money. I went back looking for POS operators, but I could not find any because, since the issue of new currency began, most POS operator locked up their business centre.”
Auta said that since he could not have access to his money, they decided to go back home, trusting God for safe delivery.
But his wife went into a labour at home late at night and he called a nurse in the neighbourhood but with the absence of medical facilities, the situation took a turn for the worse.
”My wife began labour around 11 pm. Since I could not withdraw any money, I called the attention of a nurse within our locality. But as my wife delivered, blood was coming out non-stop. All efforts by the nurse to stop the bleeding failed,” he said.
