An auxiliary nurse in a Lagos hospital has narrated how armed robbers raped her and took away her virginity.
An 18-year-old auxiliary nurse identified as Bola, will definitely live with the scar of losing her precious virginity to a gang of four robbers who raided the hospital where she works and gang raped her alongside with other nurses on night duty.
According to the young lady who has put the blame for her trauma on the doorsteps of the Egan, Ikotun Igando Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Lagos State located hospital, for not providing adequate security.
The robbers reportedly had easily gained access into the hospital located at Santa Maria Street in the area, after scaling the fence at about 3am, overpowered the security guard and tied him with ropes before locking him up in a room. They then proceeded to raid the hospital, taking turns to rape the girl and other nurses, injuring many of them in the process, before carting away valuables.
Bola narrated how she lost her virginity to the four gang menafter four robbers who stormed the hospital, took turn to rape her.
It was learnt that this year alone, robbers have attacked the hospital three times.
"The owner of the hospital did not provide security for his staff. I tell you, by this laxity, I and other staff have been subjected to mental torture.
The incident was reported at Igando Police Station, while the medical director of the hospital was arrested and later released on bail."
The Medical Director of the hospital, Dr Adegbola Dominic, confirmed the incident but said he could not be held liable for the rape of the nurses since he did not send the robbers to attack and defile them.
"When the robbers could not find money, they broke into the patients’ wards and carted away their phones, money and other valuables. I was also informed that one of my staff was raped. When I asked the victim about the incident she denied it.
I was surprised when the victim’s parents came to the hospital with police and got me arrested over the nurse’s claim that she was raped. When I got to the police station, I told them I could not be held liable for the victim being raped. I was not the person who sent the robbers to rape her.
When the incident happened, we took her through some tests and discovered she was intact. She is still a virgin and nothing happened to her. It is just that as a young girl, she suffered some shocks and that is all.
But if you heard she was raped, well, maybe she was a victim of circumstances and that obviously was not my fault. If I have a house and robbers raid my house and then rape somebody, is that my fault?"
