The youths expressed concern that if there were irreconcilable differences between some former staff and the Management of the hospital, the aggrieved parties and thier surrogate should either approach the Federal Ministry of Health or the court for interpretation, instead of taking the laws into their hands and disturbing and dirupting activities at the psychiatric hospital in Uselu adding that their action is illegal and amounts to cheap blackmail against the Acting Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. Osasu Olotu.

“We, therefore, want to state that we will arise to the challenge and defend the course of the hospital, the Medical Director and the management of the hospital.
