Doctors protest killing of colleague along Abuja - Kaduna highway

The National Association of Resident Doctors (NARDs) Friday protested the killing of one of its members along the Abuja-Kaduna Highway.
The doctors decried the persistent cases of killing and kidnapping along the highway.

Dr Oluremi Alabi was killed by gunmen along the Abuja-Kaduna Highway during a trip to Kaduna.

Speaking during the protest, NARD Chairman, University of Abuja Teaching Hospital (UATH), Gwagwalada, Dr Godday Akor, called on the federal government to show more commitments in addressing the lingering security challenges facing resident doctors and citizens across the country.

Akor described the deceased “as a hardworking doctor in the surgical department with impeccable character who made positive impact within and outside the hospital”.

“Security is paramount to the social, economic and political development of the nation, hence the need for the government to give it serious attention,” he observed.

“This is not the first time we have been hearing about security challenges along Abuja-Kaduna road and we receive cases every week from that axis.

“We are drawing the attention of the government to address the security challenges along this road and other unrest in the country to save lives and properties.

“We advise the government to also pay attention to education, empowerment of the youths and other vital sectors of the economy for national stability and development,” he said.

The chairman also advised Nigerians to be more security conscious with regards to the senseless killings by unknown gunmen in the country.

The Chief Medical Director of UTHA, Prof. Bisallah Ekele, also speaking, described the late Alabi “as a committed staff who was dedicated to the profession and service to humanity.”
