Rivers govt is working with security agencies to free kidnapped medical doctor

The Deputy Governor of Rivers State, Dr. Ipalibo Harry-Banigo, has assured that the Nyesom Wike’s administration is collaborating with the security agencies in the state to ensure the unconditional release unhurt of a kidnapped medical doctor, Alex Akani, of the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH).

She noted that as a medical doctor and mother, she was deeply pained by the kidnap and sometimes gruesome murder of medical doctors by assailants.

Harry-Banigo, yesterday in Port Harcourt, pointed out that by training and the Hippocratic Oath sworn to by medical doctors, they were trained and obliged to save lives at all times, wondering why anybody would want to harm a medical doctor, pointing out that even at war times, medical doctors were spared.

She also pleaded with the Medical and Dental Consultants of UPTH to suspend the proposed strike, occasioned by the kidnap of Dr. Akani.
