Medical apparatus, office appliances and equipment estimated at millions of naira were yesterday destroyed when fire razed down the Laboratory section of the Plateau State Specialist Hospital in Jos.

The Guardian gathered that no life was lost in the incident that was first noticed at about 2:00a.m.

A staff of the hospital said: “The incident led to commotion among patients in the hospital, but we thank God no life was lost.
“ The equipment that was destroyed is worth millions; it is huge.”

At press time, the Chief Medical Director of the hospital was yet to respond to the incident.

Recall that Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, recently renovated the specialist hospital. The government also approved procurement of hospital equipment to boost healthcare delivery at the hospital.
