Kwara state House of Assembly has asked the police to conduct a thorough investigation into the detained Chief Medical Director of Kaiama General Hospital, Dr Adio Adeyemi, who allegedly murdered two women.
Afripost newspaper recalls that the medical director was arrested by the Kwara state police command in connection with the alleged murder of two women and their decomposed bodies found in his office at Kaiama General Hospital.
While one of the decomposed bodies was discovered in a shallow grave in the suspect’s office, another one was found in a trash can in the same office.
The House in a resolution on Thursday, on a matter of general public importance at the plenary, urged the police and other security agencies in charge of the matter to thoroughly investigate the matter with a view to bringing all those involved to justice to serve as deterrent to others.
The House urged members of the Kaiama community and residents not to be discouraged by the incident, but to continue to patronize and support the new Chief Medical Director and management of the hospital.
The legislative body advised the people of the community to be security conscious and avoid taking the laws into their hands over the incident but have confidence that the perpetrators would be brought to book by the government to face justice.
The House commended Governor Abdulrahaman Abdulrazaq for the prompt deployment of a new CMD in order not to create a vacuum nor disrupt medical services in the facility.
It condoled the families of the affected deceased victims and prayed God to provide them the fortitude to bear the loss.
Hon. Abdullahi Halidu Danbaba, (Kaiama/Kemanji/Wajibe) constituency had moved a motion on a Matter of General Public Importance on the need to reassure residents of Kaiama on the reliability of the General Hospital, Kaiama to provide medical care.
Hon. Danbaba drew the attention of the House to the arrest of the former CMD of Kaiama General Hospital, Kaiama Dr Adio Adeyemi, over a murder case in Edo State after some more startling revelations about his criminal escapades, especially against members of his host community came to the public glare.
He said all those who knew the doctor were astonished because the former CMD later confessed to alleged heinous crimes which bordered on the murder of innocent citizens, kidnapping, and killings of unsuspected victims for ritual purposes in the town.
Hon Danbaba acknowledged that recent discoveries in the office of the CMD was capable of having adverse psychological effects on the people whose trust was betrayed by him as the development had sent jitters down the spines of an average Kaiama person whose only solace when seeking medical care is the General Hospital.
The Hon. member, therefore, pleaded with the people of Kaiama to put the ugly incident behind them and continue to have confidence in the medical facility and the personnel.
