“That was all we remember”, Maxwell told Showbiz on the hospital premises.” When both of us gained consciousness, we were on admission at the Trauma and Emergency Unit of the 37 Military Hospital”.
At the time Maxwell was speaking, doctors were still treating Nana Ama and would not allow anyone to visit, not even family members.
