A man identified as Ibrahim Aminu Zurmi has allegedly bled to death on the floor of the Federal Medical Centre, Gusau, Zamfara State after he was reportedly stabbed by thugs who snatched his phone.
It was gathered that the deceased was on his way to the mosque on Friday, October 4, for Jumma’at prayer after visiting his mother when a group of thugs attacked him, snatched his phone and stabbed him multiple times in his stomach and lap.
Late Zurmi was rushed to FMC Gusau accident and emergency unit but the staff allegedly refused to attend to the dying man without a police report.
Even after the report was brought two hours later, the hospital allegedly requested for payment before he will be taken to the theatre for an operation.
Before the payment and blood were brought, Ibrahim passed away after approximately five hours of bleeding on the floor.
