Today is November 9, 2022. The last eight days have witnessed sabotage and a malicious attack on Ibadan Central Hospital. To the glory of God, all the staff members who were apprehended have regained their freedom.“With the redirection of my mind from the damage being done on radio, the social media attack of our brand and the news of woes being peddled, the burden I felt dropped. I went to bed light hearted and slept soundly. I give God the glory.“At 65, after establishing the two biggest private hospitals South West of Lagos, and the two biggest private hospitals in Ibadan, having authored 23 books to help different people from various walks of life develop themselves and create wealth, and having various other companies, both in Nigeria and the United Kingdom, which employ over 500 staffers, I thank God for a fulfilled life.“Relief is, indeed, healing. I thank all of you who believe in my sterling integrity, spartan discipline and impeccable character. I thank you all for your support and encouragement. Yes, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel and I look forward to continued impact in the society and the world at large.”Olamitoye is a co-partner, Abib Olamitoye Foundation Ward, University College Hospital (UCH) and former Special Adviser to the Governor of Oyo State on Health.The deceased was said to have been taken to Ibadan Central Hospital, Osasami, for medical attention.

The family also alleged that a pound of flesh from one of the arms of the woman had been cut off between 8pm on Sunday and 7am on Monday.The bereaved family, however, mobilised people to the hospital at Ososami in Ibadan and barricaded the entrance of the facility, calling for justice.
