A Nigerian lady who is asthmatic has disclosed how she was stopped from entering a hospital located in a church premises because she wore a short dress that was slightly above her knee.
Ngozi Njoku in a Facebook post she shared, said she was in distress at the time of the incident but the security guard told her he was acting on the priests’ orders.
The Facebook user further revealed that while she cried over the incident, those who gathered were angry with the guard and kept asking what was wrong with her dressing.
She also revealed that after seeing the doctor, she decided to meet the priest to know why she initially refused access to the hospital. Ngozi said the priest told her to go home and change before entering the church, adding that he doesn’t care if she wasn’t breathing properly.
“I wore a short gown that’s slightly above my knee, to a hospital situated on a church premises, and the security guard told me that I can’t enter because of the way I’m dressed. I told him I’m asthmatic in distress and I need to see the doctor.
He told me that the hospital is under the church, and since it is also in the church premises, so I cannot enter..He also said that those were the priests orders.
I have screamed and cried my eyes out today, and he will pay for my tears. My situation caused a scene at the church and I kept asking people what was wrong with my dressing. They too are angry with him
I have seen the doctor. I am waiting to see the priest. I’m no Catholic, but I will see him regardless. He needs to tell me why I. Was refused entry to the hospital.
Some pagans will make heaven before Christians.
He actually told me to go home and change, before entering the church. He didn’t care that I wasn’t breathing properly and I brought out my inhaler to show him.”
