Kaduna: Terrorists block road, kill two, kidnap others

Terrorists were said to have blocked the Birnin-Gwari to Funtua road, in Birnin-Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State, killing no fewer than two including a commercial driver travelling along the road while scores were abducted.

This was after the General Officer Commanding, One Division, Nigerian Army, Kaduna, Major General Taoreed Lagbaja, led troops on an onslaught of terrorists in the Birnin-Gwari general areas on Wednesday 31st August 2022.

However, the Chairman of the Birnin-Gwari Emirate Progressives Union, Ishaq Kasai, said on Monday, that the terrorists relocated to the Birnin-Gwari to Funtua road where they blocked the area and killed a commercial driver and abducted several travelers.

According to him, the road is still inaccessible by travellers. Insecurity is worsening along Birnin-Gwari to Funtua road and in many communities, particularly in the Eastern part of the Local Government.

He said that most communities along that road such as Kwasa-kwasa, Marabar Kwasa-kwasa, Nacibi, Farin Ruwa among others, were being deserted for fear of any eventuality.

He added, “Again, the Armed bandits attacked Damari community on Tuesday 3rd September 2022 by 10:00 pm where one person was killed and shops looted. This came after the people who were sacked by armed bandits earlier in August have started returning to the community.

“Layin Lasan Community was also attacked by the same armed bandits in the evening on Sunday 4th September 2022 where scores of residents were kidnapped and moved to neighbouring forests. Various communities are continued to be attacked by armed bandits silently and unreported.”
