Ward attendants at the Federal Teaching Hospital, Lokoja, on Thursday, protested over the death of their colleague Salamatu Aliu of the post-natal ward, appealing to the Federal Ministry of Health to beam its searchlight on the hospital.

The protesters who were holding leaves, chanted solidarity songs such as: “All lives matter and are equal. Stop treating us unfairly as if we are not human” as they marched through the hospital.

One of them who spoke anonymously said Salamatu was rushed to the hospital for medical attention on Sunday evening after her seven-day night shift but doctors and nurses referred her to a specialist hospital in Lokoja for lack of electricity. According to the attendant, Salamatu died on getting to the hospital before medical care could be administered to her.
