Two nurses have been beaten mercilessly by a military man who took his pregnant wife for delivery and one of the nurses has been injured
According to the reporter, this military man got angry and started to argue with the nurses when he was requested to buy delivery packs for the delivery process.
The reporter quoted that, “Instead of looking for the delivery packs, the soldier rejected the demand arguing that the state government has provided such items for pregnant women that might have come for their delivery at the hospital.
“But the nurse told the soldier that he misconstrued the information, therefore, he needed to provide the delivery packs for his wife to assist her to make use of the delivery packs for his wife’s delivery at the labour room. But the statement got the soldier angry and beat the nurse to the extent that one of her legs was broken.”
It was confirmed by the Kwara State chapter of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives, Alhaji Shehu Aminu.
“The soldier became infuriated and headed to the doctor’s office and started beating the two nurses he met there. The soldier slapped one of the nurses who ran for her dear life while the other sustained ankle injury,” Alhaji Shehu Aminu said.
The soldier has been arrested and detained by the 22 Armoured Brigade of the Nigeria Army, Sobi Cantonment, Ilorin, Kwara State.
According to the reporter, the incident happened on Friday, October 22, at Okelele Primary Health Center in Nigeria and the soldier case is under serious scrutiny.
