Some gunmen have attacked the convoy of the Emir of Birnin Gwari, Zubairu Jibril Mai Gwari II along the Kaduna-Birnin Gwari highway.
It was gathered that the incident took place Tuesday evening when the monarch was on his way to Kaduna for an official assignment.
A witness told Daily Trust that the emir was not in any of the vehicles during the attack.
The Emir’s driver, Umar Jibril, who confirmed the incident to the newspaper, said the bandits had appeared in front of their moving vehicles with guns and threw tree branches on the road in an attempt to force them to stop.
He said: “We did not stop. They targeted me, since I was driving but as Allah will have it, the bullet missed my head.”
According to him, apart from minor injuries sustained from shattered glasses, no one was injured.
