Armed bandits kidnap 87 passengers in Kaduna

Armed bandits operating along Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna Highways have kidnapped 87 passengers on Sunday.

An official of NURTW told PRNigeria that most of the kidnapped victims were passengers travelling between North and Southern parts of the country.


The NURTW official said: “over 15 vehicles including long trucks, buses and commercial cars were intercepted by the armed bandits who selected their victims from their look and dressing and herded them into the bush.

“We learn that the kidnappers have started communicating and negotiating with the families of their victims, demanding for ransoms in millions of Naira.

“A man and a woman were killed today while four additional passengers were also kidnapped.

“As an official of NURTW we have warned our members to henceforth stop plying the route until there is adequate security in the area."
