Calabar Doctors Protest As Kidnappers Abduct Another Colleague - Pictures by OgaDonald: 11:47am On Jan 10
@VIVIANGIST

Dr. Emem Udoh, a Senior Registrar in the Department of Paediatrics, University of Calabar Teaching Hospital, has been abducted by unknown gunmen on Monday, while on duty in Calabar, Cross River State. 


This came barely two days after another medical practitioner with the Cross River State College of Education Medical Centre in the Akamkpa LGA, Dr. Usang Ekanem, was released following his abduction on December 26, 2017. .

There are indications that members of the state chapter of the Nigeria Medical Association may embark on an indefinite strike starting from Wednesday (today) in protest against the incessant abduction of their colleagues. .

The Public Relations Officer of the state branch of NMA, Dr. Ernest Ochang, said, “This is to inform the general public, particularly those resident in Cross River State that another medical doctor was kidnapped on January 8, 2018. .

This is coming after Dr. Usang Ekanem was suddenly released after we threatened a sit at home action. The young doctor was coming back from an extended duty of caring for children which is her passion and had to work beyond her schedule due to the few hands available in her unit. .

We wish to inform Cross Riverians that this is one too many and a direct affront on our corporate existence. We took an oath to save lives and that much we must do. We pay tax and desire to live peacefully in the society. .

This targeted attack on us is unexplainable. What is more worrisome is the quietness of government whose responsibility is to provide security for its citizens. It is our collective resolve to call government to act through whatever means that is at our disposal.”

Nigeria was bad during the last administration.

But is worse now.

Every sector of the country is not working.

Even with the hardship, the citizen are not quarantee of their safety.

I heard in Nigeria people move about with helmets on their head.

How true is that?

Even the zoo is far better than Nigeria now.

[color=#000099][/color]doctors are opportunists.... They take advantage of our health to milk us dry. Above all, they'd rather let you die than treat you without paying your full deposit.

I sincerely see nothing wrong in them saying hello to their fellow opportunists (kidnappers)


Don't quote me, I'm not well grin

Dealing with kidnapping starts with

1.Adequate records

2.Well equipped police force

3.Developing Nigeria into an industrial economy that exports manufactured goods.

4.Reporting crime where you see it.

5.Doing the right thing. Like those kidnappers could have chosen a legit way to make money

6.Helping all in need

7Using your PVC to vote

at least in a zoo, they have people who keep order there. This country is more of a wildlife reserve, that's the way to put it

This country dey useless, very soon Kidnappers self go stage their protest. It's time for everybody to realize that their is no Government in this country, if the doctors knows what best for them they should pay the ransom and go about with their duties rather than wasting their time on the street all in the name of protest at the expense of their member that is held in captivity.

Are doctors really rich enough to be kidnapped? Most doctors are not. Kidnappers should please leave our doctors alone.

Thanks Dude....
I just got back from my hospital shift, breezed in to NL, saw the news(as it seems to concern me, cos I'm a staff of a tertiary health institute), and well, I thought it brotherly to show solidarity with my fellow Dr. at Cross Rivers....
Sorry for the lengthy epistle, though, just wanna clarify things for you.....
All the same, thanks...
