Medical Workers, Assaulted Following Patient’s Death (Video)

A medical doctor at the Federal Teaching Hospital, Lokoja, has revealed how a group of men stormed the hospital on Tuesday over the death of a patient and attacked workers.

Sharing videos on his X handle, k_f2d, the doctor explained that the men who were led by an unnamed political leader demanded to see the doctors on duty on arrival at the hospital.

In one of the videos, about three people were seen struggling with a gun as shots were also heard.

In his caption, the doctor wrote, “My team was called to the A&E to review a new patient. A group of men in kaftan broke through the gate and started demanding for the doctors on duty.

“Apparently, they lost a patient. And they came for the doctors. One of them, I learnt, is a political leader.

“I was looking at them, confused, because I don’t even know the patient in question. Next thing I know, the leader stoned his phones at me. We were just three doctors there. We stood up from there and went inside.
