Corps members were attacked yesterday afternoon June 26th along Ekpoma road in Edo state. One of the victims of the robbery told LIB that the incident happened when members of the NCCF Edo state from Auchi were on their way to Benin for NCCF Edo state conference. But on getting to Ekpoma, they started hearing gun-shots and before they knew what was happening, thin-looking fierce men with sophisticated guns began firing gun-shots directly at the bus they were traveling in. Two Corps members were shot but fortunately, it wasn’t fatal. More pics after the cut…
The armed men made the Corpers come out of the vehicle and lie in the mud in the middle of the express-way where they kept demanding for money and other valuable items and also kept hitting some of them with the back of their guns. The Corpers were robbed of their money, phones, laptop. The ones who were shot are currently in Central Hospital, Benin receiving medical treatment.
Can the government please do something about this road as it has become a norm for armed robbery activities.
