Nigerian gun law rescinded

By Incorrect Author 15 October 2009

Nigerian citizens won an important victory with the scrapping of a law which forced hospitals to withhold emergency treatment for gunshot victims until police filed a report. The commercial capital of Lagos is among the world's most dangerous places when it comes to gun crime. The law was rescinded after a newspaper editor died from bullet wounds when a hospital was said to have waited for a police report rather than treat him. Clinics now face having their licences withdrawn for failing to abide by the new ruling.
