The Nigerian Medical Association, or NMA, chapter in Benue State has called off the indefinite strike it announced on Friday in response to the kidnapping of their colleague Dr. Asema Msuega in the Ukum Local Government Area.

This was said in a statement made during its emergency general meeting, which took place on Saturday in Makurdi.

The NMA expressed its extreme joy at the liberation of their colleague from the captivity of his kidnappers and ordered their coworkers who were assigned to the Ukum LGA flashpoint of violence to evacuate their job posts until further notice.

The association is evaluating the situation, the statement continued, and will give further instructions as soon as feasible.

The statement, which was signed by the secretary, Dr. Ameh Godwin, recognized the members’ sacrifices during the tough time and the public’s understanding, both of which were essential to Msuega’s release.

“We thank His Excellency, the Governor of Benue State, Rev Fr Dr. Hyacinth Alia, His Royal Majesty, the Tor Tiv, Orciviligh Prof James Ayatse, the Senator representing Benue North-East senatorial zone, Barrister Emmanuel Udende, the member representing Katsina-Ala/Ukum/Logo federal constituency, Hon Solomon Wombo, the House of Assembly member representing Ukum constituency, Hon.

He spoke.

Asema Msuega, a doctor, was released last night, according to Catherine Anene, PPRO for Benue, who was contacted about the news.
