Doctor Okeoghene Edigba, a senior registrar in the Department of Surgery, University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), has died.

On Twitter, a medical doctor, Etin-osa Imagbenikaro, shared the information, originally announced by the President of the Association of Resident Doctors (ARD), UBTH Chapter, that Edigba collapsed and died after performing four surgeries back to back.

Imagbenikaro wrote: "We lost Dr. Okeoghene Edigba a senior registrar in the department of surgery. He died while on call duty, after performing 4 surgeries back to back. He collapsed in the call room and every attempt at resuscitation proved abortive."

CORRIGENDUM: We initially reported Imagbenikaro as the ARPD President for UBTH. The error has since been corrected.
