A 25year-old vehicle mechanic, Yahaya Galadima, has been hospitalised after he was attacked by unknown gunmen, who cut off his hands.
Galadima who specialises in the repair of J5 vehicles was ambushed while returning from Rukubi in the Doma Local Government Area of Nasarawa state.
Recounting his experience, Galadima said the incident occurred around 8:00 o’clock in the night and claimed that the gunmen also took away his motorcycle, cash, and mobile phone.
We went there on my motorcycle to work on my client’s J5 bus that developed some mechanical fault.
While on our return journey from Agbabo along Rukubi before Yeluwa, all of a sudden we were ambushed.
Before asking them what was wrong, they cut off my two hands.
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson for the Nasarawa State Police Command, ASP Nansel Rahman, appealed to members of the public to avail the police with useful information that will lead to the arrest of the culprits.
