Doctors on strike over colleague’s kidnap.
THE Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) in Cross River State has directed it members to go on strike until one of them, Dr. Godwin Udo, is released by kidnappers.
NMA Chairman Dr. Innocent Abang, who lamented that doctors have become targets of kidnappers, explained that Udo, who works with the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (UCTH), was kidnapped about 7pm on November 1 from his Bateba Sreet residence.
Abang said the decision to strike was taken in an emergency meeting on Wednesday.
He urged the state to step up its commitment to the security of life and property.
