The Sir Ahmadu Bello Memories Foundation has condemned the unfortunate resurgence of armed banditry and kidnappings along the Abuja-Kaduna highway.

The foundation made the condemnation in a statement signed by its director-general, Abubakar Gambo, in reaction to the recent killing of Zamfara politician and kidnapping of dozens of others along the highway.

According to the statement, the activities of these criminals along the highway have become nightmare to commuters, with motorists becoming increasingly fearful of plying the roads.

“In spite of the efforts of government to curb the situation, abductions and killings on the infamous Kaduna-Abuja highway still go on unabated, reflecting the audacity with which the bandits operate.

“It is high time more decisive actions are taken to weed the highway, and indeed the entire region, of these undesirable elements.

“We therefore call on sustained actions against the bandits and all those abiding and abating them in their nefarious activities,” the statement stressed.
