Some gunmen suspected to be armed robbers on Sunday, February 2, opened fire on a luxurious bus conveying traders from Abuja to Lagos to buy goods.

Daily Trust reports that the attack occurred in the evening around 5.47pm when the bus was near Gada-Biyu village, along Abuja – Lokoja road.

The bus driver identified as Madu Francis, said when he was driving towards Gada-Biyu village along the highway, the gunmen who were over 30 in number, suddenly appeared from the bush and opened fire on the bus from both directions.

Francis stated that three passengers including himself sustained bullets wounds from the attack.

“But as God will have it, I bent down while on steering when one of the bullet scratched my head, but I still managed to drive down to Abaji town to park, before the three injured passengers were taken to the hospital for treatment,” he said.

The bus driver said he was conveying traders from Utako in Abuja to Lagos to buy goods when the incident happened. He, however, noted that no passenger from his bus was kidnapped or killed during the attack.
