The medical personnel downed tools on Wednesday over an assault on one of their colleagues.

According to a report by SaharaReporters, some resident doctors at the Ondo State University Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital (UNIMEDTHC), Akure, have begun a two-day warning strike over an assault on one of them by the son of a patient.

The medical personnel downed tools on Wednesday over an assault on one of their colleagues.

In August 2020, the Association of Resident Doctors, University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital chapter, went on a three-day warning strike over an alleged assault on one of its members by the family of a patient.

Dr Lanre Olosunde, President of ARD-UITH, who disclosed this to journalists in Ilorin, said the attacked doctor sustained a physical and psychological injury.

He explained that such an assault could have caused more damaging injuries or even resulted in the death of the doctor.

He observed that this was not the first time such would happen, adding that the ARD member was given a blow in the chest.
