She wept uncontrollably, having lost a huge amount of money belonging to her boss to suspected Fulani herdsmen.

She is one of the victims of a robbery incident that occurred on Wednesday on the ever-busy Abuja-Keffi Expressway.

The robbery took place at about 10am close to a village called Barde, after Gidan Waya in Kaduna State, a few kilometres from Jos, the Plateau state capital.

The robbers numbering about ten, with five of them wielding dangerous weapons, including guns and machetes, came from the bush, stopped vehicles and ordered passengers to lie face-down.

The incident was said to have taken place between two police checkpoints.

The robbers fled into the bush after 30 minutes, when they sighted some soldiers coming from Keffi.
