BREAKING NEWS: Two Dead As Robbers Attack VP Sambo Wife’s Car
Reports say a vehicle belonging to the wife of Vice President Namadi Sambo was among cars attacked by some armed robbers along the Abuja-Kaduna expressway on Friday, 18 July, 2014.
According to Premium Times report, the attack resulted in the death of two people and also caused serious injuring to several others.
An eyewitness told newsmen that the raid resulted in multiple crashes involving at least six cars, including one belonging to a nongovernmental organization owned by Amina Sambo’s I-Care Women and Children Initiative.
It was gathered that the vice president wife’s vehicle was completely burnt and could not be salvaged by sympathizers who stopped to help put off the fire.
John Oguche, a driver of one of the vehicles attacked by the robbers, told journalists in Kaduna that the accident occurred around 4p.m. near Doka Hospital along the inter-city road,
“They blocked the road near Doka hospital and made unsuspecting vehicles to ram into one another,” he said.
The Kaduna State Coordinator of the NGO, Abdulrahman Mikailu, who narrated how the robbers opened fire and dispossessed travellers of their belongings said: “Two bullets shot by the bandits missed me narrowly when I tried to come out of my vehicle to put off the fire, not knowing that a robbery operation was going on,” Mr. Mikailu said. “I had to duck and fall on the ground pretending to be dead.
“The robbers who were in military uniform thought I was dead, so they proceeded to my car and ordered my co-traveller to surrender all his money and laptops, handsets and other personal belonging of both of us.
“The fire had already raged as at the time of the attack, that is why the sympathizers could not put it off. I understand that they killed two passengers in a ‘Sharon’ commercial vehicle and robbed several vehicles.
“I am lucky to have survived with bruises and chest injury from the impact of the accident, but I lost my phones and other belongings.”
As at the time of compiling this report, there has not been a statement from the presidency on the attack
