Pandemonium broke at the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), after the suspended executive secretary for the scheme, Usman Yusuf, forced his way into the head office of the scheme with the help of several security operatives. Following a tipoff that he would be coming to work today despite his suspension, the workers and staff union of the scheme, had formed a barricade at the entrance of the Abuja office, However, when Usman arrived, he ordered the police to break the barricade formed by the workers and he forced his way inside.
His police escorts reportedly teargassed the protesting workers s they tried to prevent him from entering the office. “They tear-gassed our men and women. They almost shot when we tried to stop them. Now he is in his office with many police officers guarding him,” Omameji Abdulrazak, the workers union chairman told journalists, Yusuf was suspended last weekend by the governing council who also set up a panel to probe allegations against him. The executive secretary was previously suspended by the Minister of Health Isaac Adewole, in July 2017 over alleged gross misconduct and fraud but was reinstated by President Muhammadu Buhari in February this year.
