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

The management which noted with dismay the unfriendly and thuggery attitude of Mr Onireti, added that such attitude was capable of putting the lives of medical staff in jeopardy.

The Management, while warning and imploring the politician and other members of the community to desist from interfering in the protocol involving patient management, maintained that Mr Onireti must apologize to the hospital and the victim of their assault in the hospital.

While condemning the politician’s manner of interfering with the management of the patient which was brought to the hospital for medical attention, the Management in a statement signed by Head of its Public Relation Unit, Omotayo Ogunleye noted that such act would not be tolerated.

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

“The politician, with the help of his assilants 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 Mr Onireti and his aides, the 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.
