By Niyi Ogungbola
Nurses in Ogun State General Hospital Ayetoro,have embarked on an indefinate suspension of works demanding  justice over what they described as barbaric attack on one of their members , Nurse Adeyemi Rashidat by Dr.Adeola Olowu. 

According to the press statement signed by the Chairperson of National Association of Nigerians Nurses and Midwives ( NANNM) Ogun State branch, Nurse Funmilayo Roseline Solarin, Dr.Olowu must be redeployed from Ayetoro General Hospital with immediate effect.

According to her, if, Dr.Olowu is immediately scolded and posted out of Ayetoro General Hospital by the appropriate authority,it would prevent future occurrences and also prevent break down of rules and regulations in the entire hospital.

Narrating how the incident occurred, Nurse Solarin said that, Dr. Olowu got angry when he was called upon by Nurse Adeyemi Rashidat around 4am on Saturday 8th January, 2022 to attend to an emergency at the hospital.

"Doctor Olowu  was reported to have gotten angry and became aggressive when he was called upon at about 4am on Saturday 8th of January this year to attend to a patient who was rushed in for care. 

"In a fit of aggression, he was reported to have slapped Nurse Adeyemi repeatedly, pushed her against the wall which caused her to sustain injuries on the head and face before she was rescued by patient's relative. 

"Dr. Olowu claimed that she was disturbing him with what she should have handled without calling on him".

"It is a printed fact that such a barbaric and irresponsible behavior is against public service rules and contravenes nobility". 

We therefore demand that Justice be served by appropriate quarters to guide against any future occurrences". 

"Meanwhile,the Nursing workforce of the hospital has been withdrawn by the Association when it was noticed that nothing was done about the issue and that the said doctor is still walking around freely without feeling sober while our nurses are full of fear and insecurity". 

"We say no to barbaric and inhumane behavior. We demand immediate posting of the said doctor out of the facility for safe health delivery and security of our nurses", Nurse Solarin stressed.
