A patient who was admitted at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH) has caused an uproar after he committed suicide at the Accident and Emergency ward.

The deceased had reportedly been waiting for the doctor to attend to him when he suddenly went crazy and stabbed himself with a broken louvre beside his bed.

“The man suddenly became wild and broke a louvre beside his window and stabbed himself to death.  His wife was not around. She went out to buy something outside. There was blood everywhere. We were lucky not to have been injured” another patient in the ward said

Confirming the incident, Mr Joshua Uwaila, the spokesman for the hospital, said the unfortunate incident happened at about 10pm.
