A military man went berserk at the hospital where he took his pregnant wife for delivery and beat up two nurses, leaving one of them with a broken leg.
The incident reportedly occurred on Friday, October 22, at Okelele Primary Health Centre in Nigeria’s Ilorin, the capital of Kwara State.
Reports say an altercation erupted after the nurses who had admitted the soldier’s wife asked him to buy delivery packs for the delivery process.
“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.”
