OMG!! Gunmen Kidnap Passengers On Popular Nigerian HighwaySunday Akinseye October 1, 2018 0 COMMENTS
Five people inside a Gulf car and four haulage vehicles and their occupants on Sunday morning were kidnapped around Tashar Tsuntsaye near Kuriga, along Brinin Gwari – Kaduna highway.
This incident came barely ten hours after the arrest of a fake army officer by a civilian and a captain in the Nigerian Army currently on holiday after his assignment at Sambisa forest.
Chairman, Birnin-Gwari Vanguards for Security and Good Governance, Ibrahim Abubakar Nagwari, said in a statement that, “Today, Sunday 30th September 2018, five vehicles were intercepted by armed bandits at “Tashar Tsuntsaye” near Kuriga along Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna highways. Five people inside a Gulf-three car from Birnin-Gwari were kidnapped around 10.30am, while four haulage vehicles and their occupants were also kidnapped.
“We are calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency in Birnin-Gwari until all terrorists and armed bandits are subdued and degraded.”
While urging the people to remain calm, he said, “We hereby issue a forty-eight hours 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.
”Also, we urge 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 seventy-six people at Gwaska.
“As we await the 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.”
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Yakubu Sabo promised to update our reporter on the true situation, when he was contacted.
