He said one of the herders, who attempted to escape, was inflicted with injuries with machete by one of the gunmen.
“It was when one of the herders was attempting to escape that he was attacked with a machete by one of the kidnappers,” he said.
The Public Relation Officer (PRO) – Ardo of Fulani – of Gwomani chiefdom, Malam Haruna Gambo, who confirmed the incident through telephone, said the kidnappers succeeded in whisking away three herders.
He said one of the four kidnapped victims later escaped, even as he said one herder sustained machete cut from the kidnappers.
“It was when they [Kidnappers] were leading them [herders] into the bush and discovered that blood was rushing too much in which they abandoned him and went away with the remaining victims,” he said.
He said the injured herder had been taken to an undisclosed hospital for treatment.
