Nigerian gangs clash with swords and cleavers at Delhi hospital; staff hide in toilet

A clash between two Nigerian gangs armed with swords and cleavers raged in a nursing home in New Delhi and forced terrified staff to hide in the washrooms, according to several media reports.

The incident occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning, when a group of Nigerian nationals arrived at a nursing home in Saket, New Delhi.

A brawl broke out when a rival gang approached in an auto rickshaw and barged into the hospital, an NDTV report quoted police officials as saying.

The three injured Nigerian nationals  arrived around 4 am with a dozen other men, India Today reported.

Their cohorts were waiting outside the nursing home when the rival gang arrived and they started attacking each other with knives, swords and cleavers, according to the report.

The security guard who attempted to intervene was also reportedly thrashed.

The hospital staff hid inside washrooms, Times Now reported.

The gangs allegedly vandalised the hospital and fled before the police arrived, according to the report.
