The PPRO added, “The suspects had robbed patients and staff of the said hospital and raped some of them during their operation at the hospital.

“The Commissioner of Police, Abdulmajid Ali, had commended the police operatives who were involved in this successful operation and directed that the suspects be transferred to the Special Anti- Robbery Squad, Abeokuta, for further investigation.”
