A farmer, Gbenga Adebayo, has been attacked and cut with matchets by bandits at Ajagbusi Camp in the Ala community in Akure North LGA of Ondo State.

Adebayo, who is currently at the emergency care unit of the University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital, (UNIMEDTH), Akure Complex, was said to have been waylaid on his way to the farm.

The victim, who had his hands deeply cut, was said to have escaped by the whiskers.

Speaking on his sick bed, Adebayo said, “I was on my way to the farm with my younger brothers when four heavily armed men blocked the road.

“They challenged us and began to march us into the forest. That was when I knew we had been kidnapped. On our way, we noticed the gap between the kidnappers and us. I told the others that we had to be brave to rescue ourselves from their hands.

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

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

Confirming the attack, the police spokesman in the state, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, said the security agencies were on the trail of the suspects.
