Nigeria: Enugu Nurses Protest Murder of FNHE Head of Nursing, Maria Amadi by katty : March 29, 2019, 03:50:30 PM
Members of Enugu State Branch of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives and Health Workers of the Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital Enugu, on Friday protested the ‘gruesome murder’ of their colleague, Mrs. Maria Amadi, demanding that her killers be brought to justice.

The health workers who carried placards with various inscriptions such as: ‘We demand safety of lives in FNHE;’ ‘We need speedy investigation;’ ‘We demand government to look into the crisis in FNHE;’ ‘Killers of Dr. Maria Amadi have murdered their sleep,’ etc.,” marched to the Police headquarters and the Government House, chanting labour songs.

They also called for urgent intervention by relevant authorities to bring to justice the killers of their colleague who was allegedly murdered by unknown gunmen in front of her house on March 21, 2019.

Late Amadi, Head of Nursing Services, Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital Enugu and a mother-of-two, was allegedly shot dead on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at about 4pm in front of her house at Federal Housing Estate, Enugu, by suspected assassins that were said to have trailed her from her office.

Addressing the workers at the Neuropsychiatric Hospital before embarking on the protest, state chairman of Nigerian Labour Congress, Viginus Nwobodo, charged the Police to ensure that Amadi’s killers do not go scot-free.

“The killers of Mrs. Amadi can only run now but cannot escape justice. I know our Police can catch them if only they want to do their job,” Nwobodo said.

Also, in a protest letter to the Acting Inspector General of Police via the State Commissioner of Police, Ezekiel Omeh and Phyllis Uzokwe, chairman and Secretary of NANNM respectively, called for an urgent investigation of the killing.

They said that nurses and other health workers in the Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital and the entire nurses in the state were aggrieved and afraid to go about their lawful duties for fear of being the next target.
