The Federal Capital Territory Council of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives is seeking justice over the murder of one of its members, Grace Dauda.
According to the PUNCH, the group lamented that the security agencies are yet to apprehend the suspect who murdered Dauda on January 5 at her residence in Auta Balefi, Karu Local Area of Nasarawa State.
The deceased was until her death the Chief Nursing Officer of Federal Medical Centre, Jabi, Abuja.
Speaking to newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday, the Chairman of the association, Deborah Yusuf called for improvement on security intelligence and surveillance in the FCT and its environs.
She noted that the association would not rest until the suspects are brought to justice.
Yusuf said, “The feeling of loss is so great. It is visceral. With great sorrow in our hearts, we mourn one of our dedicated, committed and reliable members.
“It is really a monumental loss to the entire nursing community in Nigeria. We commiserate with her family on this painful loss. We pray for the repose of her soul.
“Whatever the reason for this most unnatural and barbaric act of man’s inhumanity to man, we want to stress that nobody has the right to take life except God,” Yusuf said.
She also lamented the spate of terrorism, banditry and kidnap-for-ransom across the length and breadth of the country.
As such, Yusuf urged nurses and midwives to be more security conscious, law-abiding and report any suspicious moves around their environs to relevant authorities.
