Baby Nolan Kishati-Unimye Akpong has given up the ghost.

He was barely 10 weeks old and died in the early hours of Sunday CrossRiverWatch learnt with his uncle, Mr. Jacob Akpong, a legal practitioner posting on his Facebook wall; “RIP Kisha.”

CrossRiverWatch had reported that Little Kisha was diagnosed of a serious heart condition known as “Transposition of great arteries,” a life threatening heart disease commonly referred to as TGA after birth with his parents exhausting “All their funds in the effort to save their son. They spend so much to keep their beloved son on oxygen daily,” a statement on a Facebook page, ‘SAVE KISHA’ read.

He needed USD10,000 for a surgery in India and sources in Government House Calabar told this reporter that Cross River Governor, Senator Ben Ayade had promised to pay the money.

CrossRiverWatch gathered that Mr. Ayade had fulfilled his promise and arrangements were been made to fly Baby Kisha to India but as at press time, it was unclear whether he died in India or in Nigeria.

Family sources say that the parents are currently in shock and have barely muttered complete sentences since he was confirmed dead.

Kisha was the first child of his parents who married in September 2016.

  • This is a shame as this baby could have been saved if Nigerian hospitals were up to standard. Corruption has destroyed Nigeria to the extent that our new born babies have a life expectancy of less than a year unless born healthy. Our hospitals cannot handle any complications arising from child birth because of lack of tools for medical professionals to do their jobs yet, billions are stolen on a daily basis.
