“I was coming from Akure, approaching Ilesa. I saw some vehicles ahead of me. There was a bullion van in front, the vehicles ahead of us were overtaking the bullion van and we followed too.“We just barely passed them when I heard a shot and I heard a bang on the car. We stopped and we discovered that they had shot at our car.“They didn’t stop. We stopped at Erin-Ijesa and complained to the police at the checkpoint that one of the policemen escorting a bullion van fired at us at Ile-Oluji Juction.”
If you recall, last year, he was kidnapped by Funali herdsmen and released after paying a heavey ransom.Efforts to speak directly to Falae were unsuccessful as calls put to his telephone did not connect.
