According to the ma, he is a member of Jehovah Witness and it is against their doctrine as a church to indulge in blood transfusion

Harrison Gwamnishu, an activist shared the video, according to MR Harrison, he met with the parent of the girl in Sapele Delta state.

Her father said he is not against medical aid for his sick daughter; however, what he will not permit is a blood transfusion to be done on her.

His daughter, Precious, who is just 1 year and 7 months old daughter Hydrocephalus and might undergo surgery.

However, if surgery is carried out on her, she might need a blood transfusion

But according to the father of the father of the girl, he 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 our faith”

LIFE OR SPIRITUALITY? My day has been ruined by this little 1year 7months old baby’s predicament in the hands of her Jehovah ‘s Witness parents who are religious fanatics that always locked ? indoors alone because of her health challenge. Today, Sapele Olofofo Unugbragada led me to see her. ? ? She’s suffering from Hydrocephalus and the parents have vehemently opposed all pleas to carry out surgery on the baby citing religious belief. No responsible and responsive government will fold its arms and allow any parent or guardian to act ignorantly on religious grounds in a way that would be life threatening to a citizen, especially their children or wards. We will use every legal action to rescue the child from them and bring her back to life… Your opinion is also needed as the baby needs urgent medical care. #LetsSaveThisChild #EmancipateYourselfFromMentalSlavery
