“Babalade Would Have Lived If He Wasn’t Denied Treatment”, Shorunmu Laments

The former Eagles defender, Ajibade Babalade, died at 48 of cardiac arrest in Ibadan on Friday. 

According to his former team-mate, ex Super Eagles keeper, Ike Shorunmu, the late defender would have still been alive if he was not denied treatment by a private hospital and by the time he got to the University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan it was too late. He died at the gate of the famed hospital.

In his words,
“He was denied treatment by the private hospital he was rushed to in Ibadan, he was rejected by the doctors, they referred him to the UCH.

“But on his arrival at the UCH premises, he gave up the ghost at the gate. May his soul rest in peace” Shorunmu lamented.
The former goalkeeper said he was informed of Babalade’s death after the day’s Jumat service.
