Bandits break Into Zamfara hospital, abduct health workers

Suspected bandits invaded General Hospital, Dansadau, Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State on Friday.

The bandits abducted a nurse and a caregiver

Residents told our correspondent that immediately they men stormed the medical facility, the armed men headed to the outpatient ward in search of a doctor or nurse.

“When they couldn’t find anybody there, they starting going from one ward to another. A nurse and a caregiver were abducted. They then moved to staff quarters looking for doctors and nurses but could not find any.

“The armed criminals had earlier attempted to attack Maigoge, a community located six kilometres north of Dansadau town.

“But when they laid siege to the community, the vigilantes otherwise known as Yan Sakai firmly defended the village. The vigilante killed some of the bandits and injured several others.

“They then invaded the hospital to kidnap nurses and doctors that will treat their injured colleagues in the forest.”

Maigoge is one of the few communities in Dansadau Emirate known to be firmly defending themselves against bandits.

“The staff of the facility are not carrying out night duties now. They only attend to patients at day time. They then move inside the town to spend night usually at undisclosed locations,” he added.

Meanwhile, chairman of Nigerian Medical Association in Zamfara state, Mannir Bature, who confirmed the attack to our reporter said the association is worried by the unfortunate incident.

He said they would hold an emergency state officers council meeting on Saturday (today).
