A senior Yoruba Army General name withheld has been hostalised following an accident that occurred along Kaduna- Abuja road yesterday night after his escort was attacked by suspected bandits along the dangerous road.
The Yoruba Army General who we gathered was coming from an official assignment from Kaduna was attacked after Akilubu village by suspected gunmen believed to be bandits.
A source told our correspondent that the General’s escort was able to repel the attack by opening fire on the bandits who have barricaded the road.
The source added the General ‘s vehicle eventually had an accident after escaping the bandits because of the craters and portholes on the road.
He added that the Senior Yoruba Army General who sustained injury has been hostalised.
The source added, if not for excort that repelled the bandits, they would have succeeded in kidnapping the Yoruba Army General who is very close to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
It would be recalled that Kaduna-Abuja Express road has been the most dangerous road in Nigeria.
Many Nigerians have either being kidnapped or killed for ransom on the road.
