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.

Meanwhile, Dr Moses Adaudi,the Secretary, Association of Residence Doctors, Kogi State Specialist Hospital unit, who confirmed the incident said that the death of the Doctor was as a result of lack of Intensive Care Unit at the hospital where she could have been treated when she developed complications.
