Armed robbers have attacked two private hospitals in Okitipupa, in the Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State in two separate attacks.

The attacks were allegedly carried out last week Sunday and Monday by the same gang.

A source revealed that the robbers, stormed the hospitals between 10pm and 11.30pm in the two days, collected undisclosed amount of money from the nurses and others at the hospitals.

The hoodlums also collected some money from the patients on admission, while patients and nurses who had no money to give them were beaten up.

Eyewitness revealed that the hoodlums were four in number; masked, and they came to the hospitals on motorcycles. They threatened to shoot anybody who did not cooperate with them, so all of us lied down and allowed them to carry out their operation without any hindrance.

It was gathered that immediately after the attack on the first hospital, the victims reported the case at the police station in the town where the policemen promised to take action. But less than 24 hours, another attack was launched on another hospital in the town by the same gang.
