A bereaved father has stabbed a nurse with the intent of killing her over the death of his son at the Sapele Central Hospital in Delta State.

Punch reports that the man went berserk after the medical practitioners broke the news of the death of his one-year-six-month-old child to him on Wednesday around 4pm.

The aggrieved father accused the doctors and nurses on duty of complicity in the child’s death and vowed that “one of them must die with his son.”

Following his threats, the man attempted to stab a nurse in the throat, but missed. He went after one of the doctors in an attempt to stab him, but the latter also escaped.

A source who narrated how the incident happened, said:

“The baby was brought in with a bad health condition. The accident and emergency unit resuscitated and admitted him to the children ward.

“The doctors there reviewed the case and commenced medication. Being that the condition was already very bad, maybe the father expected a miraculous recovery, but the condition deteriorated further and the baby died.

“The child’s father was angry that the doctors and nurses could not save him. He threatened that anybody he saw would die with the child. He saw one of the nurses inside the ward and attacked her.

“He first gave the nurse a headbutt and the lady fell. He beat her up and brought out an object. He attempted to stab her in the neck, but the lady dodged it and the object landed on her ear and almost cut it off.

“When people raised the alarm, he rushed back to the children ward and fled with the baby’s corpse. The management of the hospital reported to the police.”

Confirming the incident, Delta Police Public Relation Officer (PPRO), DSP Onome Onowakpoyeya said she could not tell the gravity of the injury sustained by the nurse.

The Medical Director of the Central Hospital, Sapele, Dr Benedict Ogbimi, however noted that the case had been charged to court.
