A woman has made headlines after she was attacked by an armed robber in a failed operation in Imo state.
According to the woman identified as Mrs. Priscilla Nnabusu, she was approached by the gunman while returning from vigil of women leaders and pastor’s wives on Thursday night at the State Headquarters of The Lords Chosen Church in Imo State.
The woman revealed that the young man pointed a gun at her before she confronted him boldy while declaring herself a ‘Chosen’. The woman claimed the robber shot the gun exactly at her forehead but the gun did fire.
The hoodlum was alleged to have attacked her with the gun which he used in hitting her after it didn’t fire. The suspect was said to have left his gun in the course of the robbery and fled.
Some reporters from different National Dailies in Nigeria accompanied the Church authorities to the Owerri Police Area Command to report the incident, the policeman on duty confirmed that the gun was fired but that for some reasons it refused to respond despite repeated attempts.
The Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of the station, Paulinus Asogwa, a Superintendent of the Nigeria Police, commended the Church authorities for not taking the law into their hands by reporting the matter promptly.
