Students,Travellers Abducted, Vehicles Burnt By Bandit In Kaduna

On Tuesday May 31 2022, some bandits abducted students and travelers along the Birnin Gwari highway in Kaduna State's Birnin Gwari Local Government Area.

The hoodlums also set fire to eight vehicles carrying students to write exams for the School of Health Technology in Makarfi, which were scheduled to take place at the Kaduna State University in the metropolis.

According to Idris Saidu, Public Relations Officer of the Birnin Gwari Emirate Progressive Union, who stated this in a statement, the bandits laid siege to three different locations on the highway, forcing motorists to make U-turns.

Those who were unlucky, according to the spokesman, fell into the bandits' trap and were abducted.

"Scores of travellers and students who were to write examinations for admission into the School of Health, Makarfi affiliated with the Kaduna State University were abducted," according to the statement.

“One of  our officials, Abubakar Haruna Babajo, escaped. He said eight vehicles were set ablaze by the bandits after abducting all the passengers and they were able to escape.”

“BEPU, therefore, advised intending travellers to either suspend their journey or use other possible alternative routes as large number of bandits are currently stationed on the road at three different locations.”

“This advice should not be taken for granted for security of lives and properties of our people.

“Due to the blockage of the road, some of our students who are to attend entrance exams at School of Health, in Makarfi this morning could not make it, while some of them have been abducted.

“Through the intervention of Malam Mu’azu Idris the school authority has agreed to reschedule the date for the exams to another date indefinitely.”

“We call on the Local Government and especially political leaders and Representatives to be drawing the attention of higher authorities on the deteriorating security situation along our major roads and rural communities which are presently being taken over by bandits and other terrorist groups that were dislodged from other parts of the country and beyond,” the statement added.
