Armed bandits blocked the Abuja-Kaduna Road on Sunday, kidnapping travellers.
According to one of the travellers who escaped the abduction, he said the armed bandits blocked the road at Katari village at about 2 pm and operated for more than an hour.
Another traveller told PRNigeria that “We had to turn back when we heard the shooting of guns and parked some kilometres away from the scene. After two hours when we saw other vehicles coming from the other side, we continued our journey.
Some travellers recounted their ordeal, saying ” when we heard gunshots we quickly made a u-turn until after 2 hours when the bandits left that we continued our journey. “
” On our way, we saw over ten cars empty. The occupants might have been kidnapped or were able to run into the nearby forests, for their lives,” they said.
