The management of University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, Oyo State said on Wednesday that an unidentified man deliberately jumped down from the sixth  floor  of the hospital.

Mr Deji Bobade, the Public Relations Officer of the hospital,  confirmed the incident in  Ibadan.

He said  the man purposely went to the floor  where the museum was  under lock and jumped down in an attempt to commit suicide.

“As we all know,  the JOHESU strike is on  and no health worker was allowed to be at work.

“At around 9 am, people around the ground floor of the building said they just heard the thud  sound of a heavy object.

“On getting to the place, the body of a man, probably in his late 50s  or early 60s,   was found on the ground.

“ Doctors around certified him dead.

“We contacted the Police Public Relations Officer, Adekunle Ajisebutu, who ordered his men to deposit the body in our mortuary here.

“There was no means of identification found on him  but his footwear was  a “dunlop’’  rubber slippers,’’ he  said.
