Curfew: SARS, Civil Defence officials molest Medical Doctor in Ondo

The Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) in Ondo State , Adeyemi Osowe was on Thursday molested by security men who were enforcing dusk to dawn curfew in the state.


Governor Rotimi Akeredolu had imposed a curfew on the state on Tuesday to curb the spread of COVID- 19.


The NMA member described the attitude of the security personnel as barbaric and crude.


Adeyemi- Osowe while narrating his experience in the hands of security men, urged Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to call them to order.


He said he was molested and treated like a leper  by SARs  and  Civil Defence officials at Shoprite Junction and Kaloja junction in Akure metropolis .


He added, “This evening is just the worst in my life, I was molested and treated like a leper  by SARs officers and  Civil Defence officers at Shoprite Junction and Kaloja junction in Akure metropolis respectively.


 ” I think Mr Governor ( Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu) should address this issue squarely.  I don’t know it is a crime to be Medical Doctor during  this period, afterall a Consultant  Gynaecologist and Obstetrician died yesterday in Lagos , after contracting Coronavirus while trying to safe other people’s life . I never knew it is a crime, to introduce myself as a Doctor with my Identity cards shown to them.


” Honestly we have a crop of uneducated, uncivilized, uncultured and very arrogant SARs and Civil Defence Officers in Ondo state.  


“This will never be the end to this molestation , it happened yesterday to a Doctor in Owo, while he was going to the federal medical centre to review a patient. 


“He was severely battered and tortured , even after introducing himself, this happened to me today. In spite of the fact that , that I even introduced myself as  a Medical Doctor and the PRO of NMA in Ondo state.


” This is just uncalled for ,the Commissioner of Police in Ondo as well as the Commandant of Civil Defence Corps should call their men to order”.
