Delta: Medical Doctor Killed By Cultists Not Patient's Relatives — Police

Delta: Medical Doctor Killed By Cultists Not Patient's Relat

Spokesperson of the Delta state police command, DSP Bright Edafe

The spokesperson of the Delta State Police Command, DSP Bright Edafe, has debunked claims that a medical doctor in the state was killed by family members of a patient.

The Nigerian Medical Association, Delta State Chapter, had on Monday, January 2, released a statement claiming Dr Iluobe was murdered on December 31, 2022, by relatives of a patient in a hospital in Oghara.

The statement reads in part, “The Nigerian Medical Association received with shock and sadness the news of the murder on 31st December 2022 of Dr Iluobe by the relatives of his patient at Oghara where his practice was based.

“Above scenario being the response of the patient relatives to the loss of a patient from suspected gunshot injuries can never be justifiable and has taken violence against doctors and other health care workers from injuries to murder. 

“It is unbelievable that in the face of a debilitating medical brain drain, the few doctors that patriotically decided to stay back and take care of our fellow citizens are being murdered by the same Nigerians.”

However, in a tweet posted today, Edafe stated that the deceased was killed by cultists who came into the hospital and not family members of a patient.

Edafe wrote; ''Nigerian Medical Association visits CP Delta over the murder of Dr Uyi Iluobe by Suspected cultists who came into the hospital in Oghara pretending to be patients and shot him while he was attending to them.

"He was not killed by the family of any dead patient as being alleged pls''
