The management of the Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso, has frowned at the reported assault of one of its staff members by, according the hospital’s public relations officer, Omotayo Ogunleye, at its Accident and Emergency Unit on Sunday, September 26.

According to a press statement by Ogunleye, a US-based businessman and chieftain of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) assaulted a doctor of the hospital on the said day.

The statement reads: “a doctor of the hospital was beaten by the security aides of one Mr Femi Onireti, an upcoming politician in Oyo state.”

The management of the hospital, who decried the development said it was uncharitable for anyone to threaten or bully medical personnel on duty. 

While warning and imploring the politician and other members of the community to desist from interfering in the protocol involving patient management, the management maintained that the politician must apologise to the hospital and the victim of the alleged assault.

According to the management, “the politician was commanding the doctors to place his patient on oxygen and that he should be taken to Intensive Care Unit,” noting that the doctors never gave such instruction.

“The politician, with the help of his assistants descended on a medical doctor, a staff of the hospital, thinking the doctor was filming their devilish displays at the A&E section of the hospital,” the management stated.

Owing to the assault by the politician and his aides, the statement went on, doctors at the hospital have embarked on indefinite strike until an apology is tendered to the hospital and phones seized from the victim by the politician and his aides are returned.

The matter has been reported to the concerned police station by the victim for necessary action.
