He further revealed that one of the affected building was a mechanic garage which had in it 28 cars and other important documents.

Further speaking on the attack, a Nigerian clergy man, Prophet Sangojimni who was physically assaulted disclosed that his house was set ablaze which resulted in the loss of his passport, his wife’s son’s passports along with other vital documents.
