Insecurity: Kogi NMA chairman laments over abductions of medical personnels

Some members of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in Kogi State have left the state following the incessant abduction of doctors.

The chairman of the Kogi State chapter of the association, Dr Abubakar Hassan, made the disclosure after an emergency meeting in Lokoja on Sunday.

He observed that the abductors had become more threatened and daring against the people, lamenting that the security agencies lacked the capacity to confront them in order to curb the menace.

The NMA state chairman, however, confirmed the release of the staff of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Lokoja, Dr Rukayat Musa, who was abducted on Tuesday, 21st June, 2022.

Dr Abubakar Hassan then called on the Kogi State Government to urgently take steps at supporting the security agencies to upgrade their capacity in order to curb the incessant cases of kidnappings in the state.
