“My father and brother were taken unaware by these suspected militias. They decided to travel on a motorcycle leaving his official car because of our dilapidated road network,” he said.

The traditional ruler, whom he said was scheduled to attend a peace meeting in Takum, decided to return back home because the meeting was postponed.

Ibrahim could not ascertain why the bandits who have been terrorising communities in Yangtu Special Development Area, Takum and Ussa local government areas, have decided to cut short the lives of his father and brother at the same time.
