A Delta born human and environmental rights advocate, Chief Comrade Mulade Sheriff has appealed to abductors of the resident doctor at Ojobo Central Hospital, Burutu Local government Area of Delta State, Dr Wilson Aboyitete to release him in the interest of Ijaw, Delta State and his family.
Comrade Mulade, the National Coordinator of Center for Peace and Environmental Justice, CEPEJ, noted that the abduction of a medical personnel at this critical time created a wrong impression in Ijaw land, as the riverine areas lack quality hospitals, stressing that the only one ought to have been protected from such an ugly experience.
He therefore, called on Ijaw people particularly Ojobo indigenes to take urgent steps to free Dr. Wilson Aboyitete from his abductors to reunite him with his family and guarantee the lives and property of all health workers posted to Ijaw communities in the State.
Chief Mulade who is the Ibe-Sorimowei of ancient Gbaramatu Kingdom, strongly appealed to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and security agencies in the State to do everything within their powers to free Dr. Wilson Aboyitete to assure all resident doctors, nurses and other health workers of their safety in the rural areas of the State.
He said Deltans were becoming worried over the rising rate of insecurity in the State, and urged the Governor to rise up to the occasion, especially now.
