Kidnappers Intercept 5 Vehicles, Abduct Occupants In Kaduna



Suspected armed bandits yesterday intercepted five vehicles at Tashar Tsuntsaye near Kiriga in Birnin Gwari-Kaduna highway in Birnin Gwari local government area of Kaduna State and abducted all the occupants.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by Ibrahim Nagwari, the chairman of Birnin Gwari Vanguard for Security and Good Governance, adding that the incident occurred at 10:30am Sunday.

Mr Nagwari added that the attackers abducted a driver and passengers of a Volkswagen Golf as well as occupants of four haulage vehicles.

“This incident comes barely ten hours after the arrest of fake army officer by our son and a captain in the Nigerian Army currently on holiday after his assignment at Sambisa forest.

“We are calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency in Birnin-Gwari until all terrorists in the Armed bandits are subdued and degraded.

“While urging our people to remain calm, we hereby issue a 48 hour ultimatum to the army to inform the general public the true identity of the fake army colonel and his collaborators in Birnin-Gwari no matter how highly placed they are in our community.

“We also urged the government of Kaduna State to show the world that they are concerned about the deteriorating security situation in Birnin-Gwari by a simple statement that will calm the nerves of our people they abandoned since after the massacre of 76 people at Gwaska.

“As we await response of all authorities concerned, we once again urged the peaceful people of Birnin-Gwari that are surviving without peace and security to remain calm and not take laws into their hands,” Mr Nagwari said in the statement.

Meanwhile, when police public relations officer (PPRO) ASP Yakubu Sabo, was contacted  he confirmed the incident but differ in the number of vehicles and persons abducted.

According to the police spokesperson, “a bus and a truck were intercepted, the drivers of both the bus and the truck have been abducted by the

kidnappers, but police men have been deployed to the area and investigation is still ongoing” he said.
