Authorities of the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), Ilorin, Kwara state on Wednesday seized the corpse of a deceased patient following assault on one of the medical doctors of the facility.

One of the deceased’s son was also arrested for allegedly beating the medical doctor in the Accident and Emergency Ward of the hospital for alleged poor attitude of the medical personnel which led to the death of the deceased Alhaji Saliu, said to be a butcher.

Reports said on Tuesday, three family members of the deceased, one Alhaji Saliu, reportedly beat up a medical doctor in the Accident and Emergency (A&E) Wing of the UITH for alleged nonchalant attitude of the medical staff leading to the death of their relative.

Trouble started shortly after the news of the death of their relative who was suffering from blood cancer was announced at the hospital.

The deceased was rushed to the facility on Tuesday after he suffered complications when he reportedly returned from a business trip.

One of the relatives of the deceased, Mr. Abdul, who confirmed the development, revealed that the hospital seized the corpse due to assault on one of the medical doctors.

Abdul disclosed that Alhaji Saliu was rushed to the emergency ward of the hospital some minutes past 5:00am on Tuesday and despite pleas for a doctor to attend to him, nobody responded.
