Chaz B’s Wife Explains How Her Husband Died At St. Nicholas Hospital Due To Negligence

It’s so touching and she has filed a petition asking the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) to look into her husband’s death. Chaz B presented the popular Sharing Life Issues on radio, and was very famous for it. She narrates here how he was rushed to the hospital twice and how he eventually gave up the ghost.

My husband called me at about 6:40 AM, Friday the 21st of November 2014, from work. He asked me to come and pick him up, that he was not feeling too good. I left with the driver to get him. When I got there, he was too uncomfortable, and he asked me to take him home. But on our way home, I noticed that he was in pains, so I asked the driver to reverse the car and head instead to the hospital (St. Nicholas Hospital in Lagos).

On reaching there, we met Judith, the receptionist. I asked if there was a Doctor around. This was around 7 PM. She said yes and after some time we were asked to go into Room 2. Right there we met a young Doctor called Dr. Ogidigben Kevwe.  He asked a few questions that I answered while my husband was wallowing in pains. He (Kevwe) opened an emergency file because according to him, my husband’s file was locked up in Dr. Bamgboye’s office, and no one has access to that office. I told Dr. Kevwe that my husband had incisional hernia surgery done a few months back at the same hospital, August to be precise and it was performed by one Dr. Mohan an India man, and Dr. Balogun at St. Nicholas Hospital. He started to examine him. He then left us in his office and said he was coming back. Continue...

My brother, kekwanu? I don’t know if it is politically correct to congratulate you on your release from detention.

Good News For Facebook Users! Social Platform Finally Fix App That Makes Batteries DRAIN

A Facebook engineer announced on the social media site Friday that a bug with the app that’s been draining iPhone batteries has been fixed with a new update.

The developer, Ari Grant, wrote that Facebook “found a few key issues and have identified additional improvements.”

He explained that there were two main causes for the battery-killing app; a “CPU spin” within Facebook’s code. He described the term as “repeated processing [which] causes the app to use more battery than intended. The version released today has some improvements that should start making this better,” he said.

The second one is the audio sessions created by watching video via the app. It killed batteries too.
“If you leave the Facebook app after watching a video, the audio session sometimes stays open as if the app was playing audio silently,” he explained. But that has been fixed too.

The fix comes over a week after Facebook confirmed that it would be fixing the issue soon.
