So, the bus turned back and took an alternative route.I got down, took a commercial motorcycle and I saw them looting shops and harassing passers-by.They were male and female, from cults, as they had different tattoos on their bodies.They are between the ages of 15 and 25. I heard they were on the rampage because one of them was killed.Another eyewitness, Mr. Henry Osuji, said he would have fallen a victim of their operation a week ago if he had not aborted his journey to the council bus stop.I saw them brandishing dangerous weapons at Idimu roundabout at about 9:30pm.I had to retreat immediately before they caught up with me. I narrowly escaped that day, he said.
