KIDNAPPING: HEALTH WORKERS IN OGUN STATE EMBARK ON STRIKE TO PROTEST AGAINST INSECURITY

Health workers in Ogun State have embarked on strike effective Tuesday midnight to protest the high rate of insecurity in the state.


The health workers in the state under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives and Nigerian Medical Association on Monday issued a communique addressed to the Commissioner for Health in the state, Dr. Tomi Coker, where they condemned the lackadaisical attitude of the government towards the release of their colleagues.


Recall two medical personnel were kidnapped in the state on Sunday along the Imeko/Abeokuta road while on their way to their duty post.
