An Enugu State High Court, on Thursday, acquitted three suspects arraigned before it over the murder of the head of nursing services at the Federal Neuropshytric Hospital Enugu, late Dr. Mrs. Maria Amadi.

Three colleagues of the deceased were arrested by the police and docked before the court presided over by the Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice Priscilla Emehelu.

They have been in the custody of the Nigeria Correctional Service for over two years.

The suspects included Mr. Afam Ndu, Mrs. Buzo Maduka and Mrs. Stella Achalla.

But delivering its judgement, the court held that there is no evidence linking the suspects to the murder.

It would be recalled that members of Enugu State Branch of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives and Health Workers of the Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital Enugu, had on Friday protested the ‘gruesome murder’ of their colleague, Mrs. Maria Amadi, demanding that her killers be brought to justice.

The health workers who carried placards with various inscriptions such as: ‘We demand safety of lives in FNHE;’ ‘We need speedy investigation;’ ‘We demand government to look into the crisis in FNHE;’ ‘Killers of Dr. Maria Amadi have murdered their sleep,’ etc.,” had marched to the Police headquarters and the Government House, chanting labour songs.

They also called for urgent intervention by relevant authorities to bring to justice the killers of their colleague who was allegedly murdered by unknown gunmen in front of her house on March 21, 2019.

Late Amadi, a mother-of-two, was allegedly shot dead on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at about 4pm in front of her house at Federal Housing Estate, Enugu, by suspected assassins that were said to have trailed her from her office.
