    Nurses Protest Soldier Brutality In Ondo

    Nurses at the Ondo State Specialists’ Hospital, Akure under the aegis of the Ondo State Chapter of National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), have staged a peaceful protest over the attack on one of their colleagues by a military officer.

    The Soldier had taken his colleague who sustained gunshot injuries during the attack by gunmen at the Olokuta Medium Security Prison, Akure to the hospital for treatment.

    However, trouble started when an argument ensued between the Soldier and the Nurse, named Adeyemi Adeniyi which led to the Soldier brutalizing the Nurse. The Nurse who sustained severe injuries is presently receiving treatment at the hospital.

    The Nurses abandoned their duty posts carrying placards with various inscriptions expressing their grievances and calling for the Soldier who brutalized their colleague to be brought to book.

    Addressing the protesting Nurses, the Chief of Staff of the 32 Artillery Brigade of The Nigerian Army Base in Akure, Colonel Mohammed Zubairu apologised to the Nurses on the incident, assuring them that the army authorities will ensure that justice is done in the matter.
