Kidnappers Kill Doctor In Edo


A medical doctor attached to the Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital (ISTH), Esan Central Local Government Area of Edo State, Dr. Sunday Ezuozegba, has reportedly been shot dead by suspected kidnappers who abducted him on Monday.

When the vehicle in which the kidnapped doctor was being conveyed suddenly developed problem in Ekpoma, headquarters of Esan West
Local Government Area, his abductors reportedly shot sporadically into the air to scare motorists and in the process the medical doctor was hit by bullets, resulting in his instant death.

Following the death of the doctor, workers of the tertiary health institution embarked on a peaceful protest on Wednesday to the palace of the traditional ruler of Ekpoma, Onojie Abumere II, where they complained over what they called “incessant kidnappings of medical staff.”

  1. If you guys don’t know the whole truth, why not let the news be instead of telling lies. FYI Dr Sunday was shot on Friday and wasn’t abducted on monday. It hurts to see people say what they like irrespective of the truth and call it news. Pls I urge you to kindly edit it or remove it!

  2. i like to mention dis is my uncle… and u have the story totally wrong, u should not sit in ur car and make up a story, its absurd, how do u think his wife wud react to this story?? Mschewww

  3. the writer of this story must be very stupid, infact he or she must be a big fool for writing this way. You couldn’t even spell his name correctly….. Mcsheeeeeeeee
