An official of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), Dr. Lizzy Oghenerume, has validated the HIV/AIDS result that hit the Internet some hours ago.
The doctor who is a colleague of Prof. Idia Ize-Iyamu at UBTH said: “It is true that Pastor Ize-Iyamu has HIV/AIDS, though doctors normally do not disclose this to the public. But as someone who wants to the governor of Edo State, he should be courageous enough to talk about his HIV/AIDS status.”
She added: “I am aware that Ize-Iyamu’s wife has been diverting antiretroviral drug meant for poor people who have the disease in the state, to her husband, to keep him alive, so it is no news that the APC candidate has the disease.
“Osagie Ize-Iyamu has had many crises in the past, which led to his hospitalisation here, so most doctors here know he has AIDS. According to his friends, Ize-Iyamu contracted the disease some years ago when he was very influential in government, and had sex romps with several campus girls in Government House.
“He said he used to sleep with six to seven girls at a time and it was in one of those occasions that he got infected and since then, the family has been dealing with the burden.”
