Violence erupted during the chairmanship election of the Enugu chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).
Some members of the association were spotted in a viral video destroying some of the election materials while a photo captured a bloodied member of the association who was wounded from bottle stabs.
A Twitter user and medical doctor @Dr_Nwaneki who shared photos from the scene wrote;
“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.”
