Terrorists on Wednesday evening abducted scores of people travelling inside two vehicles along the Katsina/Jibia highway in Katsina State, the Police spokesman in the state has confirmed.
The incident was said to have occurred at a portion of the highway at Kadobe village around 5p.m
According to the Spokesman for the Katsina State Police Command, Gambo Isah, the actual number of those abducted by the terrorists is yet to be confirmed.
”Yes, it is true but give me time to find out the actual numbers of those kidnapped as not all the passengers were kidnapped,” Isah said.
It was learnt that the terrorists arrived at the scene of the incident on no fewer than twenty motorcycles and stood in the middle of the road, shooting indiscriminately.
The drivers of the two vehicles were said to have panicked and veered off the road.
The terrorists were said to have 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.
