Osun Health Workers Threaten to Boycott Work over Alleged Military Harassment

The Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Osun State chapter has threatened to boycott work following the alleged harassment of its members by the military personnel.

It was gathered that a bus conveying some nurses to work was stopped by military personnel in Osogbo and they were asked to kneel down on Saturday.

Also, another set of doctors while going to resume duty, were asked to kneel down for about two hours in the state even after showing their identity cards.

The chairman of NMA in Osun, Dr Rasak Akindele who recounted what his members were facing from the military personnel called on the State Government to address the alleged harassment.

According to him,  one of the doctors that was going to work was asked to kneel for one and a half-hour after presenting the I.D until a superior officer came and identified the man before they could release him.

Akindele who described the act as demoralising, stated that such a doctor could not be able to carry out his duty without the emotional trauma.

It would be recalled that Governor Gboyega Oyetola had ordered a 24-hour indefinite curfew following looting spree and vandalism witnessed in the state in the wake of the agitation against Police brutality and bad governance.
