The University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, says it has beefed up security, following the threat of a planned attack on the teaching hospital by hoodlums.
UCH Spokesman, Toye Akinrinlola, said in a statement that the Federal Ministry of Health had alerted all teaching hospitals, Federal Medical Centres, Specialist Hospitals and other tertiary hospitals in Nigeria of the plans to attack them.
He, however, assured staff, students and other members of the UCH community that adequate measures had been put in place by security agencies to forestall such planned attacks on the government-owned hospitals.
“Consequently, the Ministers in the Ministry have directed all CMDs and MDs to beef up security around their facilities.
“Prof. Jesse Abiodun Otegbayo called Gov. Seyi Makinde to brief him on the development.
“The CMD, therefore, wishes to assure the staff, students and patients in the hospital that they are safe, as well as their property,” Akinrinlola said.
