Nigerians took to social media after a video surfaced online about a Nigerian father refusing his sick child blood transfusion.
The video was shared by activist, Harrison Gwamnishu, who met with the parents in Sapele, Delta state.
Precious is suffering from Hydrocephalus and she might need blood transfusion if she undergoes surgery.
The father of the sick said:
We in Jehovah’s witnesses, we don’t take blood. I would not want to transfuse blood into the child.
We will not accept blood transfusion. If in the course of surgery they would transfuse blood in the child, we would not want that. I don’t want my baby to die but that is because of our faith”
