Men of the Department of State Services Thursday stormed Sheraton Hotels in Abuja, where the Saudi Ministry of Health was interviewing doctors for recruitment.
The DSS operatives arrived at the interview venue, dispersed the medical doctors and arrested Marcus Fatunde, a journalist that works with the International Centre for Investigative Reporting.
However, the journalist was later released, and the interview exercise has been suspended.
Most of the doctors at the interview venue were either unemployed or poorly paid.
Doctors in Nigeria have on several occasions embarked upon industrial action due to bad working conditions and underpayment.
