Just few days the Nigerian police paraded more than 50 notorious youth thugs popularly known as ‘Yan Shila’ for attacking and forcefully collecting people’s items are back into action.
The notorious thugs had attacked and nearly killed a 30 year old carpenter, Mallam Yahya in Jimea-Yola, the Adamawa state capital.
Mallam Yahya was attacked on Wednesday around 9:00pm at Unguwan Tana.
Yahya who narrated the inciden to newsmen while on his bed at the Specialists Hospital, Yola where he was rushed to after falling victim of the notorious youth thugs, ‘Yan Sila’ said:
“Earlier, I came back from my carpentry shop and met one of the Shila boys with my sibling aged about eight.
The Shila boy claimed to be waiting for my younger brother, I then told him to go and wait for him outside the house.
The Shila boy angrily left the house hurling insults at me on his way out”. Yahya narrated.
According to Yahya on the incident, the above narration was the only reason that triggered the notorious boys to unleash their terror on the victim.
The victim was attacked by a group of three Shila boys led by the boy he earlier sent out of his home on the street when he came out to buy insecticide.
“I was attacked from behind with an axe and pointed horns. They hit my head and back”. Yahya said, almost crying.
“I was fortunate to be able to snatch the axe from the boy while I was screaming.
Fortunately, people around responded to my cry for help on time; they would have killed me.” The victim recounted.
