Again, atleast 30 passengers have been abducted by suspected terrorists along the Abuja-Kaduna highway, and an unspecified number of persons were said to have been injured.
The bandits who attacked motorists on the expressway around 4:30pm on Tuesday, reportedly shot sporadically at drivers and passengers alike.
This is coming 50 days after terrorists attacked an Abuja-Kaduna train, killing eight people and abducting over 60 passengers, some of whom are still in captivity.
According to a source, “The victims were writhing in pain by the roadside while cars were parked on the highway”, the terrorists had however left the scene before the arrival of security operatives, the source added.
Although the Kaduna State Government is yet to acknowledge the incident, videos posted by witnesses show that some victims, including children, sustained gunshot wounds.
