A Chisco Marcopolo Bus headed to the East was on Saturday attacked by armed robbers. The passengers, amongst whom were DailyTrust journalists – Sunday Micheal Francis, Arinze Iloani and Daniel Adugbo, stripped of their valuables and injured.
Thankfully, a team of soldiers appeared and saved the situation at the moment the attack was obviously turning bloody. Sunday said:
“Travelling in the company of Francis Arinze Iloani and Daniel Adugbo, our Bus drove into the waiting arms of a robbery gang shortly after the Lagos Shagamu exchange.
“Moments after been stripped of valuables, a gallant team of Nigerian solders showed up like ‘manner from heaven’ and halted what would go down as the deadliest 5 minute for many of us yet.
“Save for the little cuts here and there from shattered windscreen and pains from the stampede that followed our desperate attempts to take cover, we all came out alive and grateful.
“My soul (ones again) glorifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my saviour…”
