The University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital, Maiduguri, on Friday suspended a Doctor, Nuwar Alhaji Modu for slapping a nurse on Thursday.
The suspension was communicated to the affected Doctor via a letter signed by the hospital’s Director of Administration, B.G Mohammed.
The letter reads “You are hereby suspended from duty with immediate effect for the unruly/aggressive behaviour you exhibited towards a Staff Nurse, Goodness Chidinma Ebikwe at the Male Surgical Ward yesterday.
You are to hand over all hospital items in your possession to your Head of Department and await further instructions”.
Days ago, one Dr. Okolo was arraigned in a court in Lagos for slapping a nurse working in his hospital in Ibeju Lekki, over the care of a patient. His trial is to begin on August 19.
If charges are pressed against Dr. Nuwar Modu, he might be facing up to three years imprisonment.
