Another Senior Registrar in Pediatrics, University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (UCTH), Dr Emem Udo has been kidnapped.
The victim was kidnapped on Monday night (8th January 2018).
In a statement, the Public Relations Officer of Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) Cross River State, Dr Ernest Ochang said, “This is coming after Dr Usang Ekanem was suddenly released after we threatened a sit at home action.
“The young doctor was coming back from an extended duty of caring for children which is her passion and had to work beyond her schedule due to the few hands available in her unit.
“We wish to inform Cross Riverians that this is one too many and a direct affront on our corporate existence. We took an oath to save lives and that much we must do. We pay tax and desire to live peacefully in society.
“This targeted attack on us is unexplainable. What is more worrisome is the quietness of Government whose responsibility is to provide security for its citizens.
“It is our collective resolve to call government to act through whatever means that is in our disposal. We call on all Cross Riverians to stand with us as we push to extricate ourselves from the forces of darkness within,” the statement added
