Video: Ten Doctors Injured After Clash At LUTH



Ten members of the Association of Resident Doctors (ARD),Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), were allegedly injured by some security men from the teaching hospital during a clash.
.
Dr Adebayo Sekunmade, the president of the ARD of the hospital told newsmen during a news conference that the doctors sustained injuries when they attempted to take over their secretariat from the security men stationed there by LUTH’s management.
.
Sekunmade told journalists that one of his members was inside the ARD’s secretariat at 2.00 a.m. on Tuesday but the security men ordered him out and locked it up.
.
When contacted, the the Chairman of the Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC) of LUTH told journalists that LUTH’s management had given the ARD a letter asking it to vacate the building serving as its secretariat, six months ago.
.

Fasanmade said that the association should not have found it hard to vacate one of the seven accommodations it had within the hospital complex. He said that the management wanted to use it for an important purpose.
.
“The doctors wanted to forcefully enter the building on Wednesday’s morning and LUTH’s security men had to disallow them.’’ Fasanmade said that the doctors resulted into attacking the security officials. “We had to invite some police officers from the Ilasamaja and Bode Thomas Police Stations to secure the building and other LUTH’s belongings. “Some of the injured security officials are in the hospital wards receiving treatment,’’ Fasanmade said.
.
This report makes one wonder about the future of doctors in Nigeria. What do you think?🤔🤔
