Maka is still in shock as she has come out to share her near-death experience in the hands of "Fulani Herdsmen."

The soul singer revealed her ordeal on her Twitter page on Sunday, August 12, 2018. According to her, her bus was attacked by the dreaded herdsmen on her way to Lagos close to Ore town.

"Took a bus to Lagos from Owerri today. The journey was smooth till we got to just after Ore. We were attacked by Fulani Herdsmen with machetes and guns...God saved us all. Shout out to the driver. He a real G. Nigga didn't stop/slow down for shit!!!" she tweeted.

 

She went on to post a photo of the damaged bus. PULSE reached out to her get a comment and she shared more light on the horrific incident.

"We were close to Ore when the SUV in front of our bus suddenly made a stop thereby making her bus run into it. Then we saw a number of men run out of the bush trying to attack our bus. We kept on telling the driver not to stop even though our bus already in a bad state. We managed to speed off and stopped at a safe distance, in a small village. When we told the villagers what happened to us, they then confirmed that the men were actually Fulani herdsmen who have been operating in that area for a while," she said.
