A bill seeking to enforce treatment of gunshot and other armed attack injuries without police clearance passed second reading at the House of Representatives on Thursday.

The bill, sponsored by Wale Raji (APC-Lagos ), titled “A bill for an Act to amend the Compulsory Treatment and Care for Victims of Gunshots Act, 2017”, will empower hospitals (both public and private) to treat victims of armed attacks aside gunshots injuries without a police report.

Raji said this was to save the victims and stop the practice of rejecting them as it is done in many instances.
