Kidnapped medical doctors in captivity six months after, NMA cries out

Kidnapped medical doctors are still with their abductors six months after the incident took place.

The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) said this, and that it would hold an emergency meeting and a press conference over the matter on Thursday.

Some criminals in Kaduna state had taken the affected doctors captives since six months ago.

Dr. Shuaibu Joga, spokesperson for the NMA Kaduna chapter, called “for calm from members and request all to stay safe while we engage the necessary security organs to end this needless wanton evil.”

The decision of the NMA is coming on the heels of a recent abduction of a female judge, whose husband is a medical doctor in the state.

The abductors of the said judge had reportedly killed her eldest son, who is also in their captivity, apparently in the bid to force a ransom of ₦300million being demanded.

A human rights lawyer, Gloria Ballason, had reportedly said the kidnappers threatened to kill another of the judge’s son, who they had kidnapped too.
