Mr Yahaya Muhammed Galadima, a 25-year-old mechanic whose two hands were severed by gunmen, has told the Daily Trust about his ordeal.
Galadima, a mechanic who specializes in J5 automobiles, was ambushed while returning from Rukubi, Nasarawa State‘s Doma Local Government Area.
He was reportedly attacked while going home from Rukubi after repairing a client’s J5 vehicle.
The victim is currently being treated at the Lafia Local Government’s Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital.
Galadima, recounting the incident, stated that it occurred around 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
“It happened approximately 8 p.m. on Tuesday night,” he stated. Salisu Haruna, one of my guys, had followed me to Rukubi in the State’s Doma Local Government Area. We went there on my motorcycle to repair on a customer’s J5 because it had developed a mechanical problem.
“We were suddenly ambushed on our way back from Agbabo along Rukubi before Yeluwa.” Both of us were thrown from my motorcycle before we realized what was going on, and my boy’s left leg was injured. They did not, however, harm my son.”
They began shooting intermittently into the air after they were stopped, according to him, and demanded that he give them money. He promptly turned over all of his personal belongings, including his phone.
Galadima revealed that they seized his motorcycle after inflicting many matchete wounds on him.
“They took off my two hands before asking what was wrong,” he claimed.
“My boy was not wounded at all,” Galadima said when asked if his son was also attacked. He was hopelessly watching as they severed my hand.”
ASP Nansel Ramhan, the Nasarawa State Police Public Relations Officer, said the command had not yet been told of the regrettable occurrence when contacted.
Ramhan, on the other hand, reaffirmed that the command would do everything in its power to ensure that those responsible for the conduct were apprehended and convicted as a deterrence to others.
The PPRO also urged members of the public to report to the nearest police station in the state if they have any information that could lead to the arrest of the perpetrators.
