Eight victims of St Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu, attacked by gunmen in August, are still receiving treatment at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital.
Prof. Anthony Igwegbe, the hospital’s Chief Medical Director, confirmed the development.
Gunmen attacked the church on 6 August, killing 12 worshippers and injuring many others.
In an interview with journalists, the hospital’s head said while some of the victims had gone for first surgery, others have large infected wounds that are taking some time to heal.
He spoke to newsmen after attending the opening ceremony of a four-day Service Compact With All Nigerians (SERVICOM) training at the hospital.
Igwegbe said: ”About eight are still in the hospital because they have bone injuries and it takes time to heal.
”Some had gone for first surgery and some need a second surgery, while others have large infected wounds that are taking some time to heal.
”We are glad that we have not lost any other person since that time, we are managing them perfectly.
”Some have been going home quietly, and the remaining cases are what the hospital can handle. There is no need to take them abroad for further treatment, because we are equal to the challenge.
”None of them is beyond our capability and the facilities are here, and I am happy that we are able to put our acts together and manage them effectively.”
