A resident of the community, Mr James Ese, said the three injured persons were rushed to an undisclosed hospital for medical attention.
Ese said that the Akparabong Junction had become a nightmare for motorists and commuters in the last three weeks.
While alleging herdsmen to be responsible for the almost daily attack on the road, he called on security agencies to be alive to their responsibilities.
“We want the police to rise up to the challenge and end this menace to passengers in the last three weeks.
“This particular area of the Nde 3 Corners Akparabong Junction has become a bloodbath spot owing to kidnapping activities with over four deaths, including a baby, recorded these past weeks,” he said.
