Photos: Wing Commander, Nigerian Air Force Allegedly Beat Up Young Female Doctor, Leaves Her Critically Ill At Hospital

We feel obliged to inform you of a disastrous and mind
troubling incident. Dr Theresa is a Senior Registrar 1 in the department of
Psychiatry of Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital (Ile-Ife). She is a
very gentle, easy going, ever smiling and hardworking resident doctor.
This incident occurred at her residence in the early hours
of Thursday 25th February 2016 in her service apartment building situated
outside the hospital where she resides. Dr. Okpara, [A Wing Commander in the
Nigerian Air Force] who is a resident Doctor in the Dept of Community Medicine
in the same hospital where Theresa works also resides in that compound.
The parking lot within the compound is inadequate and as
such tenants would have to occasionally call each other (through the security
guard) to move their cars in the morning so that individuals are able to drive
out. According to an eye witness (who is a doctor in the same hospital and also
lives within the same compound), Dr Theresa’s car was obstructing Dr. Okpara’s
car and he called her out to move her car. She had told him she was dressing up
and would soon be out but he kept shouting and calling her. When she came out,
he was still abusing her and being verbally aggressive. She then told him to
take it easy since she had already told him she was dressing up and reminded
him that he also does the same thing whenever his car is obstructing someone

As Theresa came out, entered her car and fastened her seat
belt to drive out of the parking lot, Dr. Okpara continued barking asking her
to move her car out, she told him she was already in the car and asked if he
wanted to move it out himself? He then said he will teach her a lesson and went
swiflty around the car, opened her car door and held her dress and punched her
face several times. The Co-tenants had to run out to pull him away from her. At
a point he reached for his metal pedal lock and was again restrained by
Following the incident he showed no remorse, as he continued
in his verbal aggression with his shirt buttons undone calling her names. He
also dared her to call whoever in Abuja suggesting that he was above the law as
she made attempts to make calls after the incident. Dr. Theresa was rushed to
the hospital as being a known Sickle cell disease patient, her health was
paramount at the time. On arrival, it was confirmed that indeed she had
Cerebrospinal fluid leaking from her brain. This continued to be copious before
ameliorating after some hours. In adition to the frontal bone fracture detected
initially, a further depressed nasal bone fracture was detected on CT scan.
Theresa now has to decide between going for surgery to correct the facial
deformity or live with a disfigured face.
Please join us in prayers for Theresa’s quick recovery,
while we fight to ensure that Dr. Okpara is brought to Justice.
Thank you all.
