Daredevil kidnappers have returned to the Abuja-Kaduna highway on Monday, abducting dozens of travellers. The kidnappers had Sunday abducted unspecified number of passengers and killed a notable Zamfara politician, Sagir Hamidu. DAILY NIGERIAN reliably gathered that the kidnappers returned to the highway at about 4:30pm on Monday, and opened fire on motorists. Sources said the incident occurred less than five kilometers away from the point the assailants operated on Sunday. Lawan Sani, a witness who plied the road immediately after the incident said he saw at least four abandoned vehicles with shattered windshields and flat tyres. “There was serious commotion and panic around the area. Soldiers arrived at the scene almost immediately but the bandits briskly finished the operation within minutes and disappeared into the bush with many people. “I saw an 18-seater bus belonging to Zamfara Mass Transit, a Toyota Yaris, a Volkswagen Golf and one other vehicle I could not remember the model. The vehicles were raided with bullets and without their occupants,” Mr Lawan added. Spokesman for the Kaduna State Police Command, Mohammed Jalige, could not be reached for comment at the time of filing this report.
