UCH doctors declare three-day strike over attack on members

Road transport workers in Oyo State attacked some staff of the University College Hospital in Ibadan.

Following an alleged attack on colleagues by members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, the Association of Resident Doctors, University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan on Monday declared a three-day strike.

According to the president of the resident doctors of the hospital, Tunde Babasanya, members agreed to stage the protest to register their displeasure over the manner that some of their colleagues were manhandled by the NURTW members when they came to collect the corpse of their Deputy Chairman in the State, Kamorudeen Beyioku.

The drivers’ union leader gave up the ghost early Saturday after spending four days at the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital over gunshot wounds sustained during an attack by unknown gunmen.

Mr. Babasanya alleged during a briefing on Monday that the union members went wild while waiting to collect the corpse.

He said it is disturbing that staff of the hospital suffer when NURTW members or any such group go wild after the death of a member.
