Armed men killed two persons at the Abdulsalam Abubakar General Hospital, Gulu, Lapai Local Government Area of Niger State on Tuesday at about 2 a.m.
The gunmen also kidnapped over ten persons including a doctor and a pharmacist.
It was learnt that the bandits arrived in large numbers, shooting sporadically without any intervention from security personnel and the local vigilantes from the area.
This is the forth time kidnappers have attacked different communities within the area in recent times.
The incident has further heightened tension among the villagers, particularly with lack of presence of both security agents and local vigilantes during the attack.
However, efforts to get the reaction of the State Police command failed as the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, DSP Wasiu Abiodun could not be reached as of the time of filing this report.
