Facebook user Isaac Udoh has narrated how he escaped death on Saturday, September 17 after his car was attacked by Fulani herdsmen along the famous Kabba-Obajana road in Kogi state.
Udoh said he counted at least four herdsmen who pointed guns at him but he managed to escape with his life after being badly pierced in the hand by a supposedly poisonous knife.
He wrote: “Fulani struck this morning on my way to the office along Obajana -kabba road .Two Fulani pointed gun on me and the other two at the rear .I stop a while and now use reverse to run the battle of my life.
“In the process, one of the Fulani men used his long stick with knife to stab me on my right hand. I ran to road safety office to get first aid treatment. Thank God for the doctors and nurses who were at the federal road safety office at Kabba junction to give me a comprehensive treatment.
“I had five stitches on my right hand. The question is Fulani has a poisonous knive that when pierced into the body is dangerous. I have taken tetanus injection but my fear of their poisonous knife. I used to have regard for Fulani but my respect to them has seized henceforth, as they commit most of these atrocities on highways.”
