The Ekiti State Chapter of Nigeria Medical Association NMA said 7 doctors have received kidnap notice letter from unknown gunmen.
This latest threat came less than 7 days after the former Chief Medical Director of Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Dr Patrick Adegun and a nurse with Federal Teaching Hospital, Ido-Ekiti, Mrs Margaret Aladenika, were kidnapped.
Adegun was kidnapped alongside his wife, Kikelomo, a few metres to the gate of their house located on Goshen Avenue, Federal Housing in Ado Ekiti metropolis.
The Chairman of NMA in Ekiti state, Dr John Akinbote, told newsmen in Ado-Ekiti that the seven doctors received text messages from kidnappers, saying they could be picked up anytime.
Zonal Cordinator of ASUU, Akure, Dr Alex Odiyia, appealed to Gov. Ayodele Fayose to pay attention to the rising security problem in the state and ensure he get rid of hoodlums disturbing the peace of Ekiti state.
Ekiti state’s crime rate has increased drastically since Fayose took office. He has been accused of hiring hoodlums to attack his perceived enemies thereby making the state the breeding place of more radical criminals.
