A woman in her early 40s, Mrs Gloria Oriuwa, from Onuimo Local Government Area of Imo state, has regained her freedom weeks after she could not pay her hospital bill of N280,000 (Two hundred and Eighty thousand naira).

Vanguard gathered that Oriuwa lost her sixth child in a  caesarean section  at the Imo State Teaching Hospital, Orlu and was not allowed to go home for not paying her hospital charges.
