Again Gunmen Kidnap travellers on Abuja-Kaduna Road


Abducted travellers by unknown Gunmen on Thursday at 8:am occured at the Abuja-Kaduna highway kidnapping innocent travellers who were traveling for the Eid-el Kabir Celebration.

According to our source, the Thursday incident happened around Katari village in the Kagarko LGA in Kaduna State between 8am and 9am.

The source reported also that the travellers were traveling from Abuja into Kaduna and other northern part of Nigeria such as Kano to meet up with the Eid-el Kabir Celebration fixed for Friday, “we saw vehicles turning back.”




An eye witness said as the vehicles were turning back and heading to the direction of Abuja, “we had no other choice than to follow them at once. After arriving a safer area we heard of the kidnapped incident.


“However some of the travellers reported that they heard loud sounds of several gunshots where some vehicles were seen parked along the roadsides, I didn’t hear the gunshots with my ears.


“But I can report that I saw an helicopter hovering around the Katari area from where the travellers were seen coming from.” he said.


Although, the State Police in Command is yet to confirm the incident as of the time of filing this report.


ASP Mohammed Jalige who is the Command’s spokesman never responded on the phone when he was contacted neither did he replied to his text messages.
