Patient killed in KZN hospital had premonition of death

Durban - The Nigerian man who was shot dead in Clairwood Hospital last week had a premonition about his death, which he shared with his wife shortly before he was killed.

Nicholas Udemo, 33, a patient, spoke of a suspicious looking woman wh

Two armed men, pretending to be visitors, walked into the hospital’s male surgical ward and shot Udemo twice in the head and “casually” walked off.

A hospital staff member, who was on duty at the time of the shooting and asked not to be named, said Udemo had tried to cover himself with a blanket when he recognised the men, but he was not able to do so in time.

Udemo had died instantly.

“We saw the two men entering the ward but we did not pay much attention to them because it was during visiting hours,” said the source.

“One of them raised his hand and greeted us as he walked by.

“Moments later we heard screams; patients tried to take cover as the shots were fired.

“The two men walked casually back to their vehicle in the parking lot before driving off.

“As they exited through the main gate, security officers attempted to search their vehicle, but were powerless to do anything when the two men pointed guns at them.”

The hospital shooting came 41 days after an attempt was made on Udemi’s life.

An attempt is made on your life and then later you have premonitions about getting killed. Yeah, that makes sense.
