“Compulsory Treatment of Victims of Gunshot Wounds in Public and Private Hospitals in Nigeria”.
All medical doctors, nurses, health workers, hospitals and medical outfits across Nigeria whether public or private, are by law mandated to receive and immediately treat all persons with gunshot wounds whether or not such person paid money. Hence there is no need to demand for police or security report/clearance. Doing otherwise is an offence.
See sections 1 and 3 of the Compulsory Treatments and Care of Victims of Gunshot Act, 2017.
