The Pastor said: “It was in broad daylight that the three of them (Fulani herdsmen) with big guns and cutlasses invaded my building.
“They jumped the fence into my compound and came in through the poultry area with the attempt to kidnap me for ransom.
“The three of them (herdsmen) had already blocked the entrance to my house and I did not even know there was another one outside the building.
“Immediately I saw them, I shouted for help in the street and they began running after me but I really don’t know how I escaped from them”, he explained.
Pastor Ajayi noted that he escaped miraculously with some wounds – on his forehead and hand as a result of cut inflicted on him by his assailants while struggling with him.
