The National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), Ogun Council, has embarked on strike over the kidnapping of its members and insecurity.

The strike took effect from the midnight of April 13, a statement by the Chairman of NANNM, Roseline Solarin and the state NMA Chairman, Dr Oladayo Ogunlaja, said.

It described the alleged recent kidnapping of health workers as “disheartening, repugnant and unacceptable”.

It added that the state government’s approach of not negotiating with the kidnappers had made them believe that their lives and property were of no essence to the government.

Dr. Oladunni Adetola and Mrs. Bamgbose, a nurse, were abducted on April 7.

A dental therapist working at the General Hospital, Ijebu-Igbo, was also kidnapped on her way to work.
