When he gained consciousness after some time, he discovered that his hands and legs were tied and he was bundled at the boot of the car.

At that moment, he was threatened that he would be killed if he kept on talking to them. He then observed that the car made a stop somewhere (but he couldn’t recognize the place) and an Asian man came in. Thereafter, they proceeded with the drive.

After a long cruising drive, the car hit a pothole and lost direction of the road. It plunged into a maize field. Villagers were assembling to come to the scene to rescue the people from the accident.

Meanwhile, the driver is surviving internal head injuries which he sustained during the attack.
