Following a protest that broke out at the Federal Teaching Hospital, Ido Ekiti, over the death of six doctors that died in an auto-crash along Kaduna road, the Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. Lawrence Ayodele has pleaded with the staff not to allow themselves to be used for political gains.

The staff of FETHI, under the auspices of Senior Staff Association, had on Monday staged a violent protest over the doctors death, saying they suspected that the accident was spiritual and man-made .

Six doctors working with FETHI, Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti and Ekiti State Hospital’s Management Board and their driver, on Sunday died in a tragic motor accident along Kaduna road while on their way to Sokoto to attend NMA’s Annual General Meeting.

Ayodele, who said the survivors in the accident, including the Chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association in Ekiti, Dr John Akinbote are stabilizing, said it was rather unfortunate that he could be linked with the death of the doctors by some people just for political reason .
