A journalist in Media Trust Group identified as Idowu Isamotu has survived a terrorist attack along the Kabba axis of the Lokoja Kabba Highway, Kogi State. Idowu.
The assailants reportedly shot at the vehicle that the reporter had occupied.
Idowu stated that he was not sure of the intent of the assailants who targeted the driver of the vehicle, adding that their effort to stop the car by shooting at the tyre proved futile.
He said, “The attack occurred around 5:30 pm about a kilometre to Kaaba junction on our way to Abuja. We were four in the car when the terrorists came out from nearby bush to shoot at us. They are eight in number which I counted and they surrounded the car shooting from all corners.
“The driver manoeuvred his way to dodge their bullets as the car failed to stop after they hit the car tyre. Some of the bullets hit the side of the car but I am grateful we all survived with no injury.”
