The planned peaceful demonstration by medical practitioners in Imo State turned awry, yesterday, as a Consultant Family Physician in the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri, Dr. Bende Azudialo, was allegedly shot in the head by a policeman.

During a press conference in Owerri, State Chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), Dr. Hyacinth Emele, ordered a three-day warning strike with effect from today.

Emele said: “If the policeman that fired the shot is not identified and prosecuted, doctors will commence indefinite industrial action.”

Emele, who displayed the blood-stained overall worn by the wounded doctor, said a team of medical personnel were working on Azudialo.
