“As we were coming we saw seven Fulani, they attacked us. They started shooting. I tried to reverse the car but unfortunately my car got trapped. It was there they seized me and told me to take them to where our boss was. I told them Oga was in the farm but they would not listen.
We took them to where Oga was and Chief surfaced and asked what the problem was. From there they took him away. The manager that was even in the car was trying to escape and they used the cutlass to cut his head.”
