The Lagos State Government has been accused of not giving prior notice before fumigating a health care centre with patients, mothers and babies present.
A Twitter user publicised the incident which occurred on Friday at the Primary Health Center, within Egbe Idimu Local Council Development Area, near Isheri roundabout.
Busayo Otebata said he arrived at the facility with his sister and her baby taken for immunization when the government staff barged in.
The citizen, who recorded the scene, narrated how they began fumigating the whole area without prior notice to patients and other visitors.
“They started chasing all the mothers out of the building and were still claiming right that they told everyone to leave the space.”
Otebata said despite complaints, the men kept on with work without considering the health of the toddlers inside the building.
The complainant disclosed he was rough handled while trying to make a video but was not injured during the scuffle.
“They also threatened to lock me up for making videos of what they were doing. My chest is also paining me cause I might have inhaled their nonsense chemical,” he said.
Respondents are condemning the unruly behaviour, calling on the authorities to punish the persons who put patients and babies in harm’s way with reckless abandon.
