According to eyes witnesses, the middle aged man jumped from the fifth floor of the hospital building.
The Public Relations Officer of the hospital, Ayodeji Bobade, said the victim allegedly sneaked to the upper floor, following the ongoing nationwide strike embarked upon by health workers, and used the opportunity to kill himself.
He said the incident occurred at about 9 a.m. Wednesday, adding that the victim smashed his head on the concrete floor, and died on the spot.
The family could not be reached as at the time of filing this report, he said.
The body of the victim was moved to the morgue of the hospital.
