Gunmen allegedly attack Anambra hospital, take away four newborns


Gunmen have allegedly attacked a maternity hospital in Nkpologwu, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, taking four newborn babies, during the attack.

A source from the community said the incident happened on Tuesday night, and was only made known to members of the community on Wednesday morning.

“It happened in our community, and people have been discussing it since Wednesday morning. They said some gunmen stormed the hospital (name withheld) and took away four babies from the hospital.

“From what people are saying in the community, no one was injured, and no one was killed in the attack too. The motive for the invasion of the hospital was not known to anyone.

“Some people say they could have taken the babies to sell them to childless individuals, but others say it could be for ritual purposes,” the source said.

THE RAZOR could not verify the authenticity of the report, as the Anambra State Police command said it was not aware of the incident.

The spokesperson of the state police command, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga said: “I don’t have such report before me now.”
