“I narrowly escaped. Alhamdulillah. We were told that the thugs were there waiting for us, so, we waited at Na’ibawa and made sure we were many before proceeding.
“Unknowingly, they came from all angles and attacked us. They started attacking us, including women, with machetes,” he said.
Security agents, including soldiers, police, and men of the Nigeria Civil Defence Corps have been deployed to the scene.
No fewer than 50 suspected thugs have so far been arrested and taken away by the joint security operatives in their vehicles.
