Gunmen attack UNTH, abduct Deputy Director

Earlier this year, a resident doctor was attacked by gunmen on the hospital premises and abducted but later managed to escape from the kidnappers’ den.

Vanguard learnt that the kidnappers allegedly abducted a female deputy director of the hospital and a security man.

An SUV allegedly belonging to the abducted woman, a nurse, was seen abandoned in a viral video with bullet-perforated glass on the front passenger side.

The police and hospital management are yet to confirm the incident at the time of filing this report.

But a reliable source who confirmed the incident said it occurred at the same location where a medical doctor was abducted a few weeks ago.

“This is so sad; we are not safe at all in this hospital; everywhere is porous,” a distressed staff member lamented.”
