Dr. Obiabo Yahaya, a neurologist was kidnapped on December 29, 2015 and has remained in his captors' custody since a N15M ransom was demanded.
The doctors in their ward coats marched to the Delta State Government House, Asaba saying, they had “become an endangered species in the hands of kidnappers” considering the mindless manner Yahaya, a neurologist, was abducted by unidentified gunmen.
They urged all well-meaning Nigerians and particularly the government and security agencies to work harder to secure the release of Yahaya as well as protect doctors and other medical personnel from the activities of criminals.
They also asked the Delta State Government and security agents to intensify efforts to secure the safe release of their kidnapped colleague within the next 24 hours.
Meanwhile, the Obi of of Ubulu-Uku in Delta State, Obi Akazez Ofulue (III), was also kidnapped yesterday evening by unidentified gunmen who ambushed him while traveling on the Abior Road in Aiocha North Local Government Area of the state.
