Making heaven is what matters at the end of the day, not how long we lived on earth but that we finally rested in Christ Jesus. May her beautiful soul continue to RIP. This is a lesson for the living.

What I'm I missing here?? She was in UK. She got sick. She travels to WHERE to get treatment. Can somebody help explain this to me??
When Buhari is going abroad to get treatment she is coming back to Nigeria.
It didn't have to end like this. May her soul rest in peace.

My thoughts exactly, she flew from London to receive treatment in Nigeria. Odikwa egwu, ordinary appendix in 2017 still killing people here. This country is doomed. All these witchcraft doctors will not locate us Gods children in Jesus name. AMEN

Exactly the question I asked myself...from Uk to Nigeria for medical treatment? Sadly it was a fatal decision.

Pretty girl. RIP! So Sad!

I kept waiting to read the part of why she would leave the UK to go to Nigeria for her treatment. It's mind boggling, unless you're talking about attending a church for some kind of deliverance in Nigeria. Anyway regardless it's very sad and hope her family can bear the loss. RIP to her.

The sad question is why did she go for surgery in Nigeria if she was from here....don't make sense

She didnt say what was wrong with her till she came to Nigeria, she had been dealing with pain, if only she just went to the GP before she came home for Easter hols, just so sad but in ALL we give thanks to the Almighty God. Happy easter all

The story was unclear? Why did she not undergo surgery in England and why travel to Nigeria for surgery in the first place? People don't die for that type of surgery in UK, they hardly die...

She probably died ignorantly! Going to Nigeria for surgery was a big mistake! R.I.P. UK has better medical facilities.

barbz said...

From the story,she was a student of Birmingham university.Here in the Uk,as a student (be it international or home student) or citizen,You will be under NHS which offers you free medical services.Surgery like Appendix is totally free.Am wondering why she left U.K. To go to Nigeria for surgery.Something is not adding up..It is well.Rip beautiful..

As much as I do not like the social media and in a lot of pain over the passing of a very beautiful soul, I choose to make this comment just to lay to rest the speculations about the decision to come to Nigeria with regards to Kika. Kika was having stomach ache that wouldn't get better even after a visit to her GP in Birmingham and one to the A&E. She was wrongly diagnosed as having food poisoning; NHS if you know well would normally not give give antibiotics as first option of treatment. Based on available information, her parents decided she should come home/Nigeria where we have better access to antibiotics. She was immediately taken to the hospital upon arrival and had a CT scan done, where it was discovered that what she was having was indeed appendicitis and not food poisoning as diagnosed by the NHS but at thIs point it had ruptured and doctors prescribed immediate surgery. The parents wanted to take her back to England for the surgery but doctors advised against it as it was already critical, no one knew for sure how long it had been ruptured. She didn't die during surgery, she died hours post op.
Thank you all for the your kind words and condolences! I'd kindly ask that we're sensitive to the family as laying blame at the parents only hurt some more. The Lord bless you and yours

She traveled to Nigeria because unfortunately the doctors in the UK were unable to give a diagnosis. They didn't know what was wrong with her. Gross negligence on their part.

@To God be the glory, thanks for full explanation therefore it was not the late girl's fault for going to Nigeria because she was allegedly misdiagnosed by a GP in England. The story writer is obviously not a journalist and failed to investigate what led to her death properly, and it also led to assumptions about the late girl! May she RIP besides it could have happened to anybody. Folks! Things don change for Iya Charlie contri o!

Pls ruptured appendix needs an exploratory laparotomy which is a major surgery and there can be complications even death.Its different from appendectomy- which is like a minor surgery.

The same Jesus, the son of the living God, who is one with the Father, has granted you Kika, a place in his kingdom for voicing out your desire and trust in him before you expired. Even though a very painful death for your loved ones and those of us still sojourning in this world, for you, God knows that there could not have been a better time to die than when you did. Requiscat In Pacem.

Knowing she was coming for a surgery of some stuff in Nigeria which will be around Easter holiday which probably is usually celebrated in Nigeria with her folks. For me doing surgery where families and friends will be around to care for her after the surgery could have been the unanimous reason why Nigeria was the perfect place ahead of UK. In any case whatever will go wrong will go wrong. Who knows, God may just have taken her away from where she was susceptible to sinning and draw her close to Him before calling her home.My brothers and sisters, no leave drops from the tree without God's knowledge. Kika left at the time she was predestined to depart. I believe she's in a better place now, it is well with her soul. R.I.P Kika.

RIP beautiful one. It just feels like I know her. A priceless jewel. May God console the family.

Please whether Nigeria or abroad, don't fail to scrutinize prescribed medicine and the doctor who prescribed it. God made both doctors in Nigeria and abroad. God alone heals while doctors cure. Don't be over confident with the doctors abroad. Sometimes, they give wrong diagnosis and are not perfect too. Most of us nigerians are ignorant, not an insult though. We believe everything abroad is perfect, far from that.

Hello , i know her personally and the UK doctors DID NOT ATTEND TO HER PROPERLY! . Our Nigerian Doctors found out the cause of illness within ONE DAY . The UK doctors kept sending her up and down for 8MONTHS . They are the ones that delayed her treatment ; if the Uk doctors treated her earlier she would be here today !
HAVE FAITH IN YOUR COUNTRY PLEASE ! And respect the family !
