Covid-19: NMA threatens to withdraw services over alleged police harrassment


The Kaduna State chapter of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) has demanded for appropriate disciplinary action against a police Inspector who allegedly assaulted a medical doctor in Kaduna on April 23.

A statement by the association’s Chairman, Dr Stephen Kache, issued in Kaduna on Monday, said the medical doctor was on legitimate duty and had valid identification when he was allegedly assaulted.

It added that the affected doctor had sustained bruises and was responding to treatment.

“This unfortunately is not the first incident; two weeks ago the ambulance of Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital, conveying doctors and other healthcare workers was assaulted by men of the Nigerian police force,” the NMA added.

The Association threatened to withdraw its services if the police authority failed to take disciplinary action against the police Inspector.
