Popular gospel artiste, Lanre Teriba, also known as Atorise, has been attacked by unknown gunmen suspected to be kidnappers in Lagos State.

The Guardian reports that the incident happened on Saturday night at the Berger end of the Lagos/Ibadan expressway while the singer was returning from an engagement, where he had gone to entertain guests at a wedding reception.

A source said the singer is presently receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital in Lagos as he was severely injured on his head and neck region.

Speaking with newsmen from his hospital bed, Atorise reportedly said his being alive is a miracle, noting that he was only revived after he was rushed to the hospital from the scene of the incident as he had earlier passed out as a result of the devastating effect of the deadly weapon unleashed on him by his attackers, who actually left him lifeless.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the singer just released a song titled “WHY THE KILLINGS”, where he lamented the state of insecurity in the country.

In the song, Atorise campaigned against the unending cases of kidnapping and wanton killings especially by suspected Fulani herdsmen among other murderous gangs responsible for the various reported cases of killing in the country in the name of religion.
