The association particularly said the kidnap of Doctor Alex Akani of the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital is one too many.
Recall that Doctor Alex Akani a consultant family physician was abducted by unknown gunmen who stormed his resident at Rumuekini community in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area last Friday night.
Briefing newsmen in Port Harcourt on the development, State Public Relations Officer of NMA, Doctor Justice Ohaka also complained that Doctor Bobmanuel Clark who was kidnapped on 23rd was yet to regain his freedom.
Doctor Ohaka also recounted how one Doctor Obolomini was kidnapped alongside his nurses in Degema as well as Doctor Florence Onua who was shot dead around D-Line axis of Port Harcourt.
He said, “We provide essential services and we do not expect that we should be victims of attacks from the people we provide these services to. Worse still, the government and security operatives have refused to come to our aid. ”
The spokesman of the Nigerian Medical Association in Rivers State complained that the frequent attacks on medical practitioners by criminals were having a negative impact on the efficiency of healthcare delivery in the state.’’
