Terrorists have reportedly kidnapped an unspecified number of people along the Katsina/Jibia highway in Katsina State.
Naija News learnt that the assailants operated on the highway on Wednesday, August 25, 2023.
A source, according to Vanguard, revealed that two vehicles ran into the terrorists yesterday at a portion of the highway at Kadobe village around 5 PM.
The Spokesman for the Katsina State Police Command, Gambo Isah, who was contacted on the phone, said he is aware of the incident, but he could not authoritatively confirm the actual numbers of those kidnapped.
He said, ”Yes, it is true but give me time to find out the actual numbers of those kidnapped as not all the passengers were kidnapped.”
Reports said the terrorists arrived at the scene of the incident on no fewer than twenty motorcycles and occupied the middle of the road, shooting indiscriminately.
The drivers of the two vehicles who ran into them reportedly veered off the road after sighting the terrorists in shock.
The terrorists thereafter swooped on the vehicles and abducted some of the occupants.
Security operatives were said to have later arrived at the scene to secure the highway.
