“After they collected the cows, they requested for military escort but the Secretary to the District Head of Gora, Atyap Chiefdom insisted that there should be no need for military escort as he will ensure that they reach their destination safely. However, while on their way out of Gora-Gan, unidentified hoodlums ambushed and attacked the vehicle that was used in conveying them. ”

“This resulted in all the occupants of the vehicle scampering in different direction into the bush for safety. Meanwhile, Ardo Anchau, Ardo Pate and Yakubu Gaje whereabouts remain unknown.”
