The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has raised an alarm about the killing of Dr Uyi Iluobe by relatives of his deceased patient in Oghara, Delta State..
This is contained in a press release dated January 2, 2023, and signed by NMA President, Dr Uche R. Ojinmah.
According to the statement, the deceased doctor was shot dead while consulting with his other patients in his private clinic on New Year’s Eve.
Relatives of the deceased patient had sent death threats to the doctor and his hospital because he requested a police report before giving medical assistance for the patient’s suspected gunshot injuries.
The statement read in part “It is unbelievable that in the face of a debilitating medical brain drain, the few doctors that patriotically decided to stay back and take care of our fellow citizens are being murdered by Nigerians.”
While we sympathize with the family of the patient that was lost, we strongly condemn this murder and call on the government of Delta State, and the Inspector-General of Police to, as a matter of urgency, bring the perpetrators of this heinous crime to book so as to assuage the pain we feel.
“A man should not be murdered for the selfless act of being on duty on a new year’s eve.
“The Nigerian Medical Association uses this medium to call on the National Assembly to make a law criminalizing violence against Health care workers. Please save our souls from wanton attacks by fellow Nigerians.
“We are closely monitoring the handling of the case of Dr. Uyi lluobe’s murder and shall respond as the need arises.
Enough is enough.
