“Lets be careful on Ibadan express road. I escaped bandit attack at around after five this evening, after Oni-Garri on my way to Lagos. They were shooting at all of the vehicles coming from Ibadan. They’re like 10 in army uniform shooting directly at us,” she wrote.
She also appreciated God for helping them escape the attack unscathed and lamented on the worsening insecurity in the country.
“God saved me and my daughter, I can’t believe this. Like they were shooting directly at us!!! Where are we going in this country…broad daylight attack!!!” she added.
