Popular Ghanaian actor, Koo Fori, has revealed he lost his wife after surgical tools were mistakenly left inside her after she gave birth through C-section.
Koo Fori unveiled this secret after calling into Angel FM’s #PatientLivesMatter segment of the Morning Show, now known as Anopa Bofo, on Monday, July 21, 2020.
The actor was inspired to share his tragic story after a lady who was on the show that morning shared her story about how a towel was left inside her tummy for nine months after giving birth at Ridge Hospital.

Although Koo Fori did not disclose the name of the hospital, he brought to light the sensitive truth that surrounded the demise of Mary Karikari, his wife, in 2010.
When the woman died 10 years ago, it was reported that she suffered from an aggravated form of medical complications that normally come with delivery.
However, in Koo Fori's own words:
For six days, my wife couldn’t go to the toilet and she was having a swelling stomach so she went back to the hospital where the CS was performed but because the doctor knew of the mistake he had done, he neglected her and that led to her death.
