Insecurity: Doctors fleeing Kogi in droves, NMA

Kogi State chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has said some of its members are leaving the state as a result of the incessant kidnapping of doctors in the state.

The state Chairman of NMA, Dr Abubakar Hassan, disclosed this to Daily Trust yesterday after an emergency meeting in Lokoja.

 He stated that the kidnappers had become more emboldened and daring because of the lack of capacity of the security agencies to confront them.

 However, Hassan confirmed the release of Dr Rukayat Musa, a staff member of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Lokoja, who was kidnapped on June 21.

 He called on the government, particularly the Kogi State government, to immediately step up efforts at supporting the security agencies to upgrade their capacity to deal with kidnapping in the state.
