A heavily frustrated man launched an attack on a nurse at a hospital in Nigeria for allowing his son to die due to the hospital’s lackadaisical attitude towards emergency cases – he claims.
Reports suggest that he accused the hospital of complacency which to him caused the life of his son. He took a sharp object and allegedly attacked the nurse on duty. The police came in later to arrest him
Sources at the hospital said the son’s health had deteriorated before he was brought to the hospital. However, the child was stabilized and admitted but the case got worse and the child died eventually.
“He first gave the nurse a headbutt and the lady fell. He beat her up and brought out an object. He attempted to stab her in the neck, but the lady dodged it and the object landed on her ear and almost cut it off.
When people raised the alarm, he rushed back to the children’s ward and fled with the baby’s corpse. The management of the hospital reported it to the police” the source said
