When such group of people are in need of health care, their faith and belief is an obstacle for their proper treatment, and poses legal, ethical and medical challenges for attending health care provider.

Due to the rapid growth in the membership of this group worldwide, physicians attending hospitals should be prepared to manage such patients.

It is not different with a Nigerian father refusing medical assistance for his ailing daughter, Precious, just because his church, Jehovah's Witness, is against blood transfusion.

Nigerians on social media are outraged following the release of a video shared by activist, Harrison Gwamnishu, who met with the parents in Sapele, Delta state.

The ailing daughter, suffers from Hydrocephalus and might need blood transfusion if a surgery is carried out on her.

In a chat with Harrison, precious's father said, he is not opposed to medical help for his daughter but what he will never consent to is for a blood transfusion to be done on his 1 year and 7 months old daughter.

He said; 

We in Jehovah's witnesses, we don't take blood. I would not want to transfuse blood into the child. We will not accept blood transfusion. If in the course of surgery they would transfuse blood in the child, we would not want that. I don't want my baby to die but that is our faith
