The earlier scheduled chairmanship election of the Enugu chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has been disrupted by unknown persons.
The situation was tense and eventually ended in a bloody clash.
Videos from the scene that have gone viral shows some members of the association engaging themselves in a brawl. Election materials were also seen scattered all over the place.
There was also a picture of a bloodied face.
A medical doctor also shared his view on Twitter:
“The chairmanship election of the Nigerian Medical Association #NMA Enugu state branch turned violent as doctors were involved in activities unbecoming of the noble profession. This goes to show that the association is no longer about the common interest of the Nigerian doctors”.
