Bandits terrorizing some parts of Zamfara State on Friday attacked a General Hospital in Dansadau community in the Maru Local Government Area of the State.
Solacebase reports that the chairman of Nigerian Medical Association, Zamfara State chapter, Dr. Mannir Bature, confirmed the attack, in a press statement made available to newsmen in Gusau, on Saturday.
Dr. Bature said the bandits stormed the hospital with the intention of kidnapping medical doctors and nurses attached to the hospital but after a search, they only ended up in kidnapping a ward attendant and a patient’s relation.
The NMA Chairman noted that two other female staff of the hospital were injured during the attack.
With the incident, Dr. Bature added that the Zamfara branch NMA will hold an emergency state officers council meeting on Saturday, July 31, at the NMA Secretariat to deliberate on the issue.
