Six female nurses on night duty were on Tuesday gang-raped by suspected thugs at a private hospital in Osogbo, Osun State.

The rapists, who were armed with axes and machetes, invaded the hospital located in the Isale-Osun area of Osogbo in the wee hours of the night.

Reports suggest the leader of the hoodlums had earlier made several efforts to woo one of the nurses into a relationship but the nurse had been adamant.

The lady was said to have told him that he is not her type.

Infuriated, he reportedly organised his boys who stormed the hospital.

The nurses and patients including their caregivers were screaming and lamenting after their ordeal until some residents later approached the hospital.

When the youths of the area got wind of this development, they mobilized and mounted a search for the thugs who defiled the nurses.

The angry youths who brandished cutlasses and charms took to the streets of Oja-Oba, Oke Baale and caused mayhem.

The hospital refused to comment on the matter but a staff was quoted as saying that the police had been informed.
