Continuing, the source said, “Alas! Yesterday, tragedy struck. Dr Vwaere walked into the ill-fated elevator from the 10th floor hoping to come down to ground floor to pick her ordered food from an eatery delivered by the dispatch rider!

“Upon pressing the button, the distressed elevator in fulfilment of the wishes of the management of the hospital that a life must killed by this elevator before it’s repaired, parked up, tempestuously carried this Babcock University-trained medical doctor and dashed her to the ground with a loud bang that shook the entire building to its foundation.”
