“They carried my family. They were many, I couldn’t count them. One said I wasn’t dead so they whipped me on my belly with a cutlass. They were all Hausa boys,” the visibly worried victim said.
A window of the victim’s car was seen broken with shards of glass on the back seat.
The spokesman of Delta State Police Command, DSP Bright Edafe, requested a conversation by SMS after several calls to his phone line.
He was yet to respond to the text as of the time of filing this report
