No fewer than 30 passengers travelling along the dreaded Kaduna-Abuja Highway have been abducted by terrorists.
The attack reportedly happened around 4:30 pm on Tuesday, leaving many injured, including women and children.
Our correspondent also gathered that an unspecified number of persons were said to have been shot during the attack.
The hapless passengers include those travelling in a Zamfara State Transport Authority 18-seater bus, one Peugeot 406, two Toyota Corolla, a Golf car, and several other vehicles which were reportedly attacked by the terrorists.
The attack came barely two months after bandits derailed a Kaduna-bound train, killing scores and kidnapping several persons including pregnant women, some of whom are still in captivity.
“The victims were writhing in pain by the roadside while cars were parked on the highway,” a source said.
The terrorists had left the scene before the arrival of security operatives, a source informed.
