The Nigerian Medical Association election in Enugu on Thursday ended with violence.
In a tweet by a doctor, @Dr_Nwaneki, doctors in attendance were involved in “activities unbecoming of the noble profession.”
Members who gathered at the Michael Okpara square were severely beaten by thugs allegedly sponsored by a faction of the body.
In another tweet, @Chrisvica said the crisis was linked to a faceoff between the Association of Resident Doctors of the Enugu State Teaching Hospital and the NMA.
The resident doctors had obtained a court order stopping the election from holding.
