A young Nigerian woman, identified as Omotola who has been suffering from a case of mental health for six years and her 5-year old daughter Sophie are sending out a cry for help.
Omotola who was been discharged after successfully completing her treatment at Neuropsychiatric Hospital in Barnawa Kaduna is still searching for her family and loved once as no one has come forward to pick her after she regained her senses.
Her daughter Sophie on her part has been at FCT Unity Orphange in Gwagwalada while her mother’s treatment continued.
In a letter by Dr. Maruf Damilola Mustapha of the Health & Human Services Secretariat, Abuja, well meaning Nigerians are beckoned upon to assist in finding Omotola’s family.
Below is the letter by Dr. Damilola below along with pictures of Omotola and her daughter Sophie:
Hope this meets you well. I am trying to get media coverage for a young girl Omotola who was suffering from a case of mental health for six years. Through the help of health staffs of Abaji General Hospital and a LG welfare officer, I was able to get Omotola and her 5year old daughter admitted for treatment.
Omotola has now regained her senses, after three months at the Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital in Barnawa Kaduna. Her daughter Sophie was equally admitted to the FCT Unity Orphange in Gwagwalada. Omotola has since been discharged, but no family member has come forward to take responsibility for her.
We are trying to create as much publicity as possible via online and mainstream media to help Omotola get re-united with her family.
Attached with this mail are pictures of Omotola and her baby, as well as a report on her by a writer Tahir Sherriff. We look forward to your humble assistance to help spread this information.
