Armed robbers attacked a hospital in Ogun State, carting away drugs, cars and other valuables.
The hoodlums were said to have stormed Lekfad Medical Centre, Isale Abetu in Abeokuta, Ogun State last weekend and attacked patients, nurses and a doctor.
They were said to have operated for at least one hour unhindered.
According to DAILY POST, the armed robbers who were fully armed scaled the fence of the hospital under the guise of darkness and overpowered the security guards on duty.
It was gathered that the armed robbers beat the doctor at the hospital to stupor, collected two car keys in the hospital and left him in a pool of his blood.
The doctor is now receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital, the paper reported.
A patient at the hospital, Mr. Afuape Monday, explained that the armed robbers gained entrance to the hospital immediately the generating set in the hospital went off around 12 am on the fateful day.
“All the robbers gained access to the hospital facility immediately the power generating set went off around 12 midnight,” DAILY POST quoted him as saying.
“Two of the armed robbers scaled the fence, attacked the security guards and then open the gate for about ten others who took strategic positions around the hospital premises.
“While some of them held the doctor and his family hostage, about 3 others attacked patients and nurses collecting their phones and other valuables.”
“They shot sporadically and dared anyone to come out to confront them while the robbery operation lasted for over one hour. The medical doctor was seriously injured as they hit him with gun on the head, forced him to divulge his PIN and account details.”
The case has reportedly been filed at Adatan Police Station.
“The case has been reported at the Adatan Police station but no suspect is yet to be arrested.”
