It was gathered that the position of the management angered the family members and they led some numbers of hoodlums to the hospital to retrieve the corpse.

It was learnt that the hoodlum disrupted the hospital and unplugged the life-supporting machines of some patients in protest.

Confirming the story, the Chief Medical Director of UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital, Prof Peter Olaitan, said, “two patients died of COVID-19 and the relations felt the diagnosis was not correct and started making trouble that they would like to bury their dead relations. Normally COVID corpses are buried by the COVID team to avoid infection of other members of the public. We later resolved the matter. No patient had the life support removed or died as a result of this.”
