Terrorists occupy Katsina highway and kidnap travellers



Terrorists abducted an unspecified number of travellers in two vehicles on the highway between Katsina and Jibia in Katsina State on Wednesday evening.

The incident occurred at about 5pm on part of the highway at Kadobe village.

Katsina State Police Command spokesman, Gambo Isah, confirmed the incident, stressing that he must be given time to find out the actual number of abductees.

He said, “Yes, it is true, but give me time to find out the actual number of abductees because not all the passengers were abducted.”

It was learnt that the terrorists arrived at the scene with no less than twenty motorbikes, stood in the middle of the road and fired indiscriminately.

The riders of the two vehicles reportedly panicked and ran off the road.

The terrorists then allegedly pounced on the vehicles and abducted some of the occupants.

The security forces reportedly arrived at the scene later to secure the highway.
