It was a dark Monday at the Kogi State Specialist Hospital Lokoja as the Head of Department of Internal Medicine, Dr Chukwudibe Rosemary suddenly died over alleged unpaid salaries.
This is also as another doctor, Idris Nuhu and three nurses slumped due to alleged exhaustion.
It was gathered that one attendant also slumped and was currently on admission alongside the nurses.
Sources said all of them have not been paid since February.
It was further gathered that the deceased doctor, who was admitted on Sunday evening for heart related issues, suddenly developed complications around 2 am while his colleagues were battling to save him.
Sources at the hospital said that all the three nurses had been on duty since Saturday morning and were exhausted due to workloads, which had increased in the last two months due to the strike of Joint Health Sector Union, JOHESU.
