The family, a father, and his son were attacked on Saturday evening while returning from the farm.

According to a source who pleaded his name to be off media, the son (name unknown) sustained a deep cut in his head and lower abdomen as well as his father who appeared unconscious.

Both of them were rushed to Federal Medical Center (FMC ), Yenagoa and currently responding to treatment.

This is coming moment both governors of Southern regions reactivated open grazing law restricting any form of grazing across communities.
