Gunmen invade Delta hospital, abduct 3 patients

From PAUL OSUYI, Asaba

Gunmen suspected to be ritualists have invaded the Tuberculosis and Leprosy Centre at Sanubi Town in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State, taking away three inmates in the process. They were said to have stormed the centre in a commando-like style and ordered all those present to lie face down.

The bandits thereafter kidnapped three inmates on treatment before escaping to unknown destination. But the police, who trailed the hoodlums, following a distressed call from anonymous source, later rescued the victims at Ugolo-Orogun. Delta State Command Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Charles Muka confirmed the failed abduction attempt to Daily Sun yesterday in Asaba.

Muka said based on information, the hoodlums were trailed to Ugolo-Orogun and on noticing that police were closing in on them, they abandoned the victims and escaped. The police image-maker said no arrest had been made, but that the command had spread its dragnets to trap the fleeing bandits.
