Another video showing a man, who man survived bullet wounds, spoke about his experience. He said: “I thought I was dead, having been shot by the attackers.
“They faced our vehicle shooting at us. We all lay down except the driver who was the target. They thought we were all dead and retreated into the bush.”
The joint patrol team of police officers from Ogun and Oyo state arrived at the scene later.
