Bandits have abducted two nurses during an attack on Idon General Hospital in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna state.
The hospital is located less than a kilometre from a police checkpoint along the Kaduna-Kachia road in Idon.
The incident which occurred in the early hours of Thursday comes barely 24 hours after several students were abducted and one person killed during an attack on Greenfield University along the Kaduna-Abuja highway in Chikun Local Government Area.
The Chairman of Kajuru Local Government Area, Cafra Caino, who confirmed the incident, said the bandits stormed the general hospital through the fence with deadly weapons and started shooting sporadically within the hospital premises.
He explained that two nurses identified as Afiniky Bako and Grace Inkut who were on night duty were taken away by the bandits.
The Chairman also said that plans were underway to boost security in the hospital and environs to avoid a future occurrence of such an attack.
