Two medical doctors and a nurse were held hostage for some hours in Kano by Covid-19 patients, creating a mild drama amid rising figures of coronavirus cases in the state.

Aminu Mohammed, former chairman of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), made this known during a radio programme on Friday, May 8, The Cable reports.

Mohammed said the incident happened while the doctors and nurse were conducting a routine checking around the ward where the patients are being managed.

He stressed that the incident was a confirmation of the challenges being faced by health officials who need to manage hostile patients apart from treating them.

Although Tijjani Husaini, head of Kano COVID-19 technical response team, said he was not aware of the incident, Mohammed called for support for the medics facing the risk of managing the coronavirus cases.

Kano currently has 547 cases of coronavirus, the second-highest in the country after Lagos.

In the late hour of Friday, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) announced 386 new cases of Covid-19 of which 65 cases belonged to Kano.
