Six female nurses on night duty were on Tuesday gang-raped by suspected thugs at a private hospital in Osogbo, Osun State
Reports said the rapists, armed with axes and machetes, invaded the hospital in the wee hours of the day.
It was gathered that leader of the hoodlums had earlier had his intention to date one of the nurses turned down. The lady had told him that he was not his type. Infuriated, he reportedly organised his boys who stormed the hospital and raped the nuses on duty.
New Telegraph quoted one of the residents around the hospital as saying: “The leader of the thugs had made several efforts to woo one of the nurses into a relationship but the nurse had been adamant.
“The thug had made several phone calls to the nurse which she did not pick. After that, he decided to check on her at the hospital where she is working.
“When the man (thug) got to the hospital, he met with the nurse but she shunned him.
“As a result of this, he reached out to his members who stormed the hospital to rape the nurses and after that, dispossessed patients of their money and phones, including those of the nurses.”
The hospital refused to comment on the matter but a staff was quoted as saying that the police had been informed.
