Gumel thanked the doctors for the visit and assured them of his continued support in protecting lives and property, as well as ensuring law and order in hospitals across the state.

“The NMA is a crucial police partner and a professional association which if there is a problem in that sector, nobody will be at peace,” he said.

He sympathised with the NMA over cases of assault on their members and assured that the command was ever ready to ensure their safety and create a safer working environment for healthcare practitioners in the state.

Nonetheless, he emphasized how crucial it is for the medical field and the police to work together to handle security-related issues.
