There was pandemonium on Monday morning at Isale-Osun area of Osogbo, capital of Osun state when residents of the area discovered that some suspected thugs had allegedly invaded a private hospital in the area, Atewogbeja Hospital Osogbo and Rap£d the nurses on night duty.
The affected female nurses numbering six were said to have been S3xually assaulted in turn by the fierce looking thugs who were said to be armed with cutlasses and axes.
A resident of the area who resides beside the hospital told our correspondent that the ugly incident happened on Sunday, September 24, 2017 at around 12am.
The source, who did not want his name in print, disclosed that the leader of the thug had made several efforts to woo one of the nurses into a relationship but the nurse had been adamant.
He explained that “the thug had made several phone calls to the nurse but she was not picking his calls. So, he decided to check on her at the hospital where she is working. When the man (thug) got to Atewogbeja hospital, he met with the lady nurse but she bluffed him. This infuriated him and he made some phone calls to members of his gang to meet him at the hospital with dangerous weapons. This was around 11:30pm.
” Few minutes after he made this call, some fierce-looking suspected thugs besieged the hospital and Rap£d the six nurses on night duty. After forcefully having their carnal knowledge, the thugs raided the hospital. The dispossessed patients their money and phones including those of the nurses,” the source added.
