Suspected terrorists have reportedly kidnapped an unspecified number of travelers along Abuja-Kaduna expressway on Sunday.
DAILY NIGERIAN gathered that dozens of terrorists, often referred to as bandits, opened fire sporadically on travelers around 4pm, forcing many drivers to lose control.
Sources told DAILY NIGERIAN that many passengers who attempted to run were fired at, while those who cooperated were shepherded into the bush.
A survivor who preferred not to be named told our reporter that the incident occurred around Rijana area.
“The kidnappers took advantage of the damage on the road, which forced on and off-coming motorists to move slowly on a single lane,” he said.
Spokesman for the Kaduna State Police Command Mohammed Jalige did not respond to our reporter’s call.
