Senate Passes Bill On Compulsory Treatment Of Gunshots Victims

The Senate has passed a bill which seeks to establish a law that ensures that victims of gunshot wounds receive necessary treatment.

Passed on Tuesday, the Compulsory Treatment and Care of Victims of Gunshots Bill, when signed into law will prevent medical workers from denying care to gunshot victims.

According to the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, the bill will help put a legal framework in place to prevent unnecessary loss of lives, especially as not every gunshot victim is a criminal.

“By the passage of this Bill, the Senate has moved to ensure that every hospital in Nigeria, both public and private, must accept to treat victims of gunshot wounds without any clearance from the police,” Saraki said.


  1. These senators are nothing but a bunch of leeches.

    The senate should be scrapped or turned to a volunteer's job with no salaries and no benefits.

    Nigeria cant just afford what these people are getting as salaries and benefits.
    That is the honest truth.

    It remains to be seen who will bell the cat by organizing a coup, kicking all these guys out, sacking all the corrupt judges that made them while reorganizing new and credible elections.

    This is the only way these leeches can be be given the boot. No other way, as our courts has been compromised to the extent that any highest bidder wins any court case in Nigeria of today. Also, President Buhari that we expected that would deal with these thieves seems to be seriously incapable.
