poThe University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital (UMTH) was temporarily thrown into a state of panic Thursday, as policemen who brought corpses of their colleagues killed in Bama to the morgue, went berserk; shooting a medical doctor and beating up some medical staff in the process.

They were also alleged to have destroyed medical laboratory equipmenst in the hospital.

A staff of the hospital who spoke on condition of anonymity narrated how the incident happened thus: “You know when there is no place to keep corpses, sometimes they are kept on the floor pending when a space is created for refrigerating, but when they came this morning, the mobile policemen went on the rampage and started shooting. They beat up a professor and other medical staff and also shot a medical doctor before some miltary men in the hospital brought the situation under control.”

According to him, the action of the policemen has made some doctors in the hospital to resolve never to attend to policemen who are brought in almost on a daily basis for treatment.

“The doctors are saying that they deserve some respect from the uniform men because some of the security operatives, particularly the police, have this disrespecting attitude towards them.

“Some of these doctors and professor they beat up would have been IGPs if they are in uniforms, but somebody who is far down the ladder treats them as nobody,” he explained.

Attempts to get the Chief  Medical Director, Professor Tahir Othman, to speak on the incident did not yield results.

Meanwhile, despite the Borno State Police Commissioner, Yuguda Abdullahi’s visit to UMTH about four hours after the incident, Resident Medical Doctors of the hospital have embarked on an indefinite strike following the shooting of their colleague by policemen.

Chairman of Resident Doctors of the institution, Dr. Mohammed Yahaya said; “Our union has from today embarked on an indefinite strike following the attack on one of of our colleagues and others by policemen.”

  1. Useless people who knows where to go and open fire but refused to go there.go and open fire on Boko haram and their sponsorer .

  2. Craz people, is it d doctors that killed ur colleagues? Or havent u heard or known that doctors have also been killed directly or indirectly by these same BH sect? Who did they shoot or inject with bad drugs?
    You people are just too shameless and mannerless, pls tender an urgent and unreserved apology to the UMTH doctors without any further delay.

  3. Why not them go and shut wit Bama ppl instead of civilliance without gun. As the doctors av gone on strike what is d faith of d patience?

  4. The true test of courage is when you engage in a gunfire with your fellow youth who also have a gun. It is cowardice to fire a gun on an unarmed man.
