Medical Doctors who performed a surgical operation on Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, due to the recurrent pain caused by a fracture in his leg, have concluded the procedure and described it as successful. 

Osinbajo, yesterday, had a surgical operation on his leg due to a nagging pain possibly caused by an injury he sustained.

Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, last night, confirmed the VP was alert and well.

The news was contained in a statement, titled: “Successful Medical Treatment Of The Vice President,” signed by the Medical Director, Duchess International Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos, Dr. Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi, and made available to newsmen by the Presidential Spokesman.

“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,” the statement read.
