Some robbers have raided a Lagos hospital on Santa Maria Street, in the Egan, Igando area of Lagos State. It was learnt that after carting away valuables of patients, they also raped an 18-year-old auxiliary nurse in the hospital.

The incident happened around 4am on Thursday.

PUNCH Metro was told that it was the third time the robbers would attack the hospital in a year. It was learnt that the robbers stormed the hospital around 3am, scaling the fence before gaining 

They overpowered a 19-year-old security guard from Niger Republic, tied him with rope and locked him in a room before carrying out their operation. The staff on night duty were brutally attacked and wounded and when the robbers could not get enough money, they resorted to raping the teenage nurse in turns. A source said:
"The girl was actually the one who went to the police station to report. She accused the management of the hospital of dereliction of duty and said she was raped by the men. She also alleged that the owner of the hospital did not provide adequate security for his workers and thereby subjected her to mental torture after she was raped and she lost her virginity."
He added that the medical director of the hospital was arrested, but later released on bail.

The Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. Adegbola Dominic confirmed the incident and said he could not be held liable for the rape of the nurse.

He said he was also informed that one of his staff was raped and when he asked the victim, she denied. That he was surprised when her parents came to the hospital with police and dragged him to the station over the nurse's claim that she was raped. He said:
"It is an everyday affair here. The robbers come to the street almost every time to rob residents. It is the third time they would come to the hospital. They came in and dispossessed patients of their valuables. 
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? 
"I am doing all these because of the girl. And if it is her parents or anybody that spreading wrong information, I don't think I am to blame. I have already tried my best."
He said security had been beefed up in the area to forestall a recurrence. The Police Public Relations Officer, Kenneth Nwosu, said he was not aware of any incident at the hospital.

In a text message, he said, "We have no such case."
