Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has demanded the unconditional release of one of its members, Ekanem Ephraim, who was abducted from her residence by unknown gunmen on Thursday in Calabar.

In an interview today, the NMA Chairman in Cross River, Felix Archibong, said the kidnappers disguised as patients, whisked away the doctor and have reached out to the family, demanding ransom.

The state Police public relations officer, DSP Irene Ugbo, confirmed the incident, noting that men of the force were already on the trail of the kidnappers to know where the victim was taken to.

Recall that medical practitioners have, of recent, been targets of kidnappers in the state, resulting in NMA embarking on industrial actions in some occasions to get their members released.
