Protesters Block Abuja-Kaduna Highway Over Bandits Attack


RESIDENTS  of Goningora in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State earlier yesterday blocked the Abuja-Kaduna Highway to protest incessant attacks on the community by bandits.

Following another attack on the night of Wednesday, 28 February  2024, several members of the community were said to have been kidnapped and several injured.

Angry residents took to the streets on Thursday morning, blocking the busy Abuja-Kaduna Highway.

The development caused heavy traffic on the road, with many motorists stranded.

Two people, including a member of the Civilian Joint Task Force, were reportedly killed in the attack.

The latest attack on the Goningora Community comes barely a week after soldiers killed a notorious bandit, Kingpin, Boderi Isyaku and some of his fighters in the same Chikun Local Government Atea. 

A military armoured vehicle was said to have been set ablaze by the bandits when soldiers attempted to repel them.
