Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, in Osun State has condemned the attack and death of the Chairman, Medical Advisory Council of the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals Complex, Ile Ife, Prof. Jerome Elusiyan by unknown gunmen in Edo State.

According to the Secretary of the NMA in the state, Taofeek Akinniyi in a statement said that Elusiyan was returning from Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital where he had acted as an external examiner at the just concluded pediatrics clinical examination of Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma.

Akinniyi said Elusiyan’s demise would create a huge vacuum in the medical profession in Nigeria and at the Osun State chapter of NMA.

“The Nigerian Medical Association, Osun State branch, expresses our dejection over the untimely death of one of our members whose exit had created monumental vacuum in the medical practice.

“We want the government to not only fish out the reckless orchestrators and perpetrators of this dastardly act, but to also subject them to face the consequences of their deed.

“Government should as well formulate appropriate policies that will secure our highways, guarantee protection of lives and property and redeem the diminishing hope for good governance in order to prevent lawlessness and anarchy in this respect.”

He said after Elusiyan’s vehicle was shot several times, the driver succeeded in driving away from the scene to a police checkpoint, where it was discovered that Elusiyan was already dead..
