Enugu Community Dedicates Hospital To Deities For Protection

Ogurute Uno community in Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area Enugu State has dedicated its newly constructed general hospital to deities for protection and security. The community said the decision comes after a series of vandalism and theft at the hospital, resulting in the loss of valuable equipment worth millions of naira, including an ambulance, children’s beds, solar panels, and TV sets.

A community leader who was seen in a viral video speaking to the deities, expressed frustration and disappointment, stating that the community is being sabotaged by unknown individuals stealing the hospital’s equipment. The community leader can be heard in the video saying; “The people here today are people of Ogurute Uno community.

“This is Ogurute Uno General Hospital built for us by the government. The government brought for us equipment for taking care of the sick in our villages. They also equipped this hospital to enable it to function to the benefit of our people.”

He said, “But, thieves have stolen the equipment such as air-conditioners, solar battery, solar panels, an ambulance bus, TV sets, wheelchairs, stretchers, ceiling fans children’s beds.

“And to think that these things were provided not too long ago is more worrisome. This is the main reason we have come together and agreed to hand over this General Hospital to the deities here. Yes, it may look as if we’re going too far but we have suffered from the wickedness of man. And we want to put a stop to it.”

“Any man or woman who said he or she is not happy about this hospital and has a hand in the missing items, let the deities take care of them,” he added. The community however said that they would forgive the thieves if they returned the stolen items as soon as possible otherwise the deities would visit such persons.
