Armed robbers allegedly steal babies at University of Calabar Teaching Hospital

Daredevil armed robbers who attacked the premises of the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital have been accused of stealing three newborn babies from the pediatric ward of the hospital.
According to Punch. the robbers who were about 10 in number, invaded the premises on Sunday night, November 25th and carried out their attack, with no mask on. They reportedly moved from bed to bed to pick up babies. They beat up the hospital staff and also attacked pregnant women in the pediatric ward. They also stole phones and cash from people in the ward.
A nurse in the hospital who spoke on condition of anonymity said
“Sunday night, several armed robbers gained access to this (paediatric) unit. They came with guns and machetes. They beat up my colleagues and some nursing mothers. They took away some babies and money from the patients and nursing mothers. The security in this hospital has been very porous. Lives of patients, nurses and doctors are at risk. There is nowhere in this hospital that is safe. There is so much stealing going on. Visitors are no longer controlled. People troop into the wards without any check. Many, including thieves, come in the guise of being patients’ relatives. Hospital properties are stolen frequently, while electricity supply is a big challenge in the hospital, because the diesel and generator parts are stolen frequently by the workers and armed robbers.”
The nurses said security in the hospital has been porous for months as the private security firm employed by the Hospital management, had withdrawn their services over non-payment of salaries.
When contacted, the Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Prof. Thomas Agan, denied that the incident happened in the hospital.
The Cross River State Commissioner of Police, Hafiz Inuwa, said he could not speak on the incident because he was out of Calabar.

A 24-year-old man, Godwin Banchir, who beat his 65-years-old mother to death for not responding to his greetings, was, yesterday sentenced to death by hanging by Plateau High Court, sitting in Jos. Shocking: Boy makes love with dead mother’s corpse in Edo NAN: Man to die by handing for murder NAN: Man to die by handing for murder Justice Daniel Longji, handed down the sentence as he found Banchir guilty of killing his biological mother. Delivering the judgment, Longji said: “Going by the findings of this court, you Godwin Banchir, mercilessly took the life of your mother, Mrs Saratu Banchir, in cold blood. “This sentence is mandatory, as the law states that any person convicted of murder shall be punished with death by hanging. “The sentence of this court upon you is that you, Godwin Banchir, will be hanged until you are dead, may God have mercy on your soul,’’ he said. It was gathered that the convict was first arraigned on June 6, 2016, charged with culpable homicide, contrary to Section 221 of the Penal Code punishable with death upon conviction. The convict was said to have committed the crime on Jan. 21, 2016, when he used a stick to beat his mother to death. Banchir in his confessional statement said that he returned from the farm on the said date and found his mother sitting in the compound and when he greeted her, she ignored him. He said that infuriated him and he picked a stick and hit her. In his words: “I got angry when she did not respond to my greetings, so I picked the stick of an axe and hit her around her ribs. “She fell down and started shouting, which attracted our neighbours who came to beat me up and later took me to the police station. “I have been having misunderstandings with my mother each time I return from the farm, she doesn’t cook for me on time, and she always quarrels with me whenever I want to bathe with the water she fetched from the stream. “Her actions always annoyed me, I did not know that she was going to die from the beating she received from me.”
