The National Hospital in Abuja became the first hospital in Nigeria to live-tweet an operation that saved life of an eight-year-old girl.


According to the BBC’s correspondent Nasidi Adamu Yahya, the operation successfuly repaired a hole in the girl’s heart.

It was done to show Nigeria’s expertise to the world, hospital spokesman Dr Tayo Haastrup said.

Hospitals in some other countries, including Canada, have live-tweeted heart operations before.

Dr Haastrup said there were no ethical concerns as the patient had not been identified.
