NMA Rivers State Member Dies at the Den of Abductors

NMA Rivers State Member Dies at the Den of Abductors

The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), in Rivers State, has confirmed the death of one of its members, Dr. Sam Opara, after he was abducted by unknown gunmen last week.

The deceased was a medical doctor at a D/Line clinic in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
The chairman of NMA in the state, Dr. Furo Green, told newsmen that the police confirmed the death of Dr. Sam Opara yesterday and informed him of the development.

Green said that according to the police, Sam Opara may have died on Sunday February 22, with his body transported to an undisclosed location in Borokiri, Port Harcourt.

“Dr. Sam Opara has been confirmed dead. The police confirmed it yesterday and then reached me. By this morning, his son has gone to the morgue to confirm that the body the police had earlier confirmed with photograph was the body of his father. The police confirmed that it looks like he died on Sunday and his body was transported to somewhere in Borokiri behind Comprehensive Secondary School,” Green said.

Following the incessant abduction of medical doctors in the state, NMA met with Governor Rotimi Amaechi as well as security chiefs in the state recently to put an end to this menace.

The governor assured the medical practitioners at the end of the meeting that measures had been put in place to stop the abduction of not only doctors but also all Rivers people in the state. 
He said the body of their deceased colleague has been deposited in the morgue.

  1. What a tragedy and a great loss to his family, friends, patients and the medical profession for Dr Sam Opara to die in those circumstances
    One wonders what right others have to bring to an abrupt end the life of their fellow citizens in a society where there is no declared war.
    RIP Dr Opara.
