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

According to a statement signed by Roseline Solarin, NANNM Chairman, and Oladayo Ogunlaja, the state Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) Chairman, the association said the strike took effect from midnight, April 13.

“The recent kidnapping of health workers after rendering their services to the good citizens of Ogun is so disheartening, repugnant and unacceptable,” the association said.

“Recall that Dr Oladunni Adetola and Mrs Bamgbose, a nurse, were precisely abducted on the 7th of April, making it six days in incarceration.
