While trying to escape from abductors, a middle-aged farmer, Gbenga Adebayo, was attacked and macheted by suspected armed bandits at Ajagbusi camp in the Ala community in Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State.

Adebayo, who is currently at the emergency care unit of the University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital, (UNIMEDTH), Akure complex, was ambushed by four heavily armed bandits while on his way to the farm.

The victim, who had his hands deeply cut and currently battling with his life at the hospital’s facility, escaped death by whiskers during the attack.

Speaking from his hospital bed, Adebayo said he had a terrible experience in the hands of the suspects who almost killed him for challenging their plans.

“It was a terrible incident for me. I was on my way to the farm with my younger brothers when the four heavily armed men blocked the road.

“They challenged us and they began to lead us into the forest. In fact, that was when I knew we had been kidnapped by the bandits, numbering about four.

“While on our way, we noticed the gap between the kidnappers and I had to tell others that we have to be brave to rescue ourselves from their hands. I collapsed for two days after I managed to escape and lost lots of blood.

“I never knew they were watching but as I tried to escape they attacked me. Two of them began to wrestle with me and cut my two hands during the fight, I managed to run for my life.”

Adebayo revealed that he has spent a lot of money for treatment, abd added that he was still preparing for surgery in the hospital.

He pleaded for assistance from well-meaning Nigerians to pay bills and prepare for his surgery.

“Aside from the money I have spent on bills here, I am planning for surgery soon on the hands because the attack was just too much. Right now, I am begging for urgent assistance from people within and outside the state.”

Confirming the attack, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya said the security agencies are currently on the trail of the suspects.

“A complaint was lodged at the station after they had escaped from the hands of the kidnappers but our officers are currently trailing the suspects.

“So, we are urging the residents of the state to always give us timely reports of incidences like this. The police in the state in collaboration with other security agencies are battle-ready to combat any criminal elements.”
