Many travellers are feared killed and scores kidnapped as bandit terrorists opened fire on travellers along the busy Kaduna-Zaria Road on Monday evening.

The attack occurred at Kofar Gayan on the outskirts of Zaria.

The terrorists struck around 8pm, shooting sporadically at vehicles in order to immobilize them and abduct the passengers.

Witnesses told DAILY NIGERIAN that the attackers had taken many travellers into the bush before the arrival of security agents.

“They kidnapped many travellers, some fled, while others who were shot at. It will be difficult to determine the number of those killed or abducted,” said a witness.
