WAPLOADED learnt that the incident occurred on Sunday when the assailants opened fire on travelers along the ever-busy Kaduna-Abuja Highway.

According to Daily Trust, he was killed alongside other travelers.

The Kaduna State Police Command could not be reached for reaction as at press time. The command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige could not take calls and he is yet to respond to text messages forwarded to him by WAPLOADED.

However, a Facebook user, Kabeer Gambo Rigasa, raised the alarm via a post on his page saying,

“ALHAMDULILLAH, ALHAMDULILLAH. Escaped Being Kidnapped Along Abuja to Kaduna Road around 3:30pm today.”

WAPLOADED reports that the popular Kaduna-Abuja Highway has recently become a death trap for travelers, who are constantly attacked; killed and abducted by the armed bandits and suspected herdsmen.
