Hoodlums Invade UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital, Retrieve Corpse of COVID-19 Patient

On Thursday, February 11, 2021, The Osun State University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, was attacked by some hoodlums who invaded the hospital to retrieve a corpse of a COVID-19 patient.

The incident led to a serious havoc in the hospital as some of the suspected hoodlums were alleged to have unplugged life-support machines in the Accident and Emergency Unit of the hospital.

According to reports, the crisis started after a COVID-19 patient died in the hospital and family members of the deceased insisted that the corpse should be released to them for burial. Their request was denied by health personnels of the hospital, explaining that the burial will be conducted by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

The Chief Medical Director of Osun State University Teaching Hospital confirming the story, “two patients died of COVID-19 and the relations felt the diagnosis was not correct and started making trouble that they would like to bury their dead relations. Normally COVID corpses are buried by the COVID team to avoid infection of other members of the public. We later resolved the matter. No patient had the life support removed or died as a result of this,” he said.
