Doctors say a surgical procedure carried out on Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, on Saturday, was successful.
Earlier on Saturday, Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, had said the vice-president was scheduled for surgery over a “recurrent pain in his leg.”
Akande disclosed that Osinbajo’s surgery took place at the Duchess International Hospital in Lagos.
Also, a statement signed by the Medical Director, Duchess International Hospital, Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi,
indicated that the vice-president would be discharged within a few days.
Dosunmu-Ogunbi’s statement read, “The Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, GCON, was admitted to the Duchess International Hospital GRA, Ikeja, Lagos, today on account of a fracture of his right femur (thigh bone), possibly related to a longstanding injury associated with a game of squash.
“He had a surgical operation performed by a team of specialist doctors, including Dr. Wallace Ogufere (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon); Dr. Om Lahoti (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon); Dr. Babajide Lawson (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon); Dr. Ken Adegoke (Consultant in Anaesthesia & Critical Care); Dr. Oladimeji Agbabiaka (Consultant Anaesthetist); and Dr Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi (Consultant Physician & Medical Director).
“The operation was successful, and he is expected to be discharged within the next few days.”
