“They robbed us of everything we had, some they stripped half-naked. They locked us inside the 59-seater luxury bus and set it ablaze. We thank God that we later escaped; nobody died but everything we had was collected.

“We thank God that we didn’t lose anyone but we lost everything we were travelling with and some sustained injuries.”

“This is Ifesinachi Motors that we are travelling with on Friday night and this attack happened around 2 am. They stripped us half-naked. You can use it; the people in the vehicle are completely stranded. There are some people who were macheted and some who broke their legs. We have small children among us,” another one added.

He continued: “We were somehow told that robbers were on the road but the conductor told the driver to move and we entered into the den of the robbers. After robbing us, they burnt the vehicle.”
