Terrorists have kidnapped an unspecified number of motorists along Kuriga and Manini, near Udawa, along Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna highway on Monday.
This was disclosed in a statement by Ibrahim Abubakar Nagwari, Chairman, Brinin-Gwari Vanguards for security and good governance.
He stated that “Terrorists along Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna highway intercepted a convoy of motorists, with security escorts between Kuriga and Manini near Udawa.”
Nagwari explained that they abducted an unspecified number of people and took them into the bush.”
He added, “in the last four days, terrorists laid siege on motorists on Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna highway, abducting as well as killing and wounding many innocent citizens, yet our people are reduced to silent mode with no reportage of the ugly situation nor any move by the authorities to show concern on the deteriorating security around Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna highway,” he lamented.
According to the Chairman, on Monday, eight vehicles were set ablaze by the terrorists, saying that unaccounted number of innocent motorists mostly women and children were waylaid into the bush by the terrorists for ransom.
He took exception to the fact that with all the security challenges the people were going through, no politician cared to visit Birnin-Gwari to either see delegates, but rather called delegates to Kaduna for consultations.
