A male nurse has been placed on a 3-month suspension from the Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Enugu after injecting one of his patients with an unprescribed drug, after said patient became upset over the March 28th Presidential election.

Alozie Ejimadu, reportedly went on Facebook to boast about his act saying:

"The announcement of presidential election has reached its crescendo to the point that one of my patient was crying, saying she is not happy because Jona failed election; i didn’t hesitate to silence her with injection Paraldehyde 10 ml stat, I’m chlorpromazine 150 mg and iv diazepam 20 mg stat"

He went on to say:

"At least this will keep her sleeping till tomorrow when the final result must have been announced. Anybody who dare think like my patient will certainly receive a double of the injection I gave my patient…(ARA GBAKWA NDI ARA AHU- meaning those mad people should get mad the more)"

His post did not go unnoticed as a non-governmental organization, Centre for the Right of Psychiatric Patient saw the post and petitioned the Board Chairman of the hospital.

"His activities as was posted on Facebook by himself is a cross violation and abuse of the right of a psychiatric patient. Mr. Alozie’s activity is unbecoming of a psychiatric nurse of whose care a patient is left. We demand the hospital to immediately remove him from the clinical area and suspend him to identify the patient and assess possible damage to the patient."  the petition read.
