Armed bandits operating along Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna Highways, on Sunday kidnapped 87 passengers.
An official of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) told PRNigeria that most of the kidnapped victims were passengers travelling between North and Southern parts of the country.
The NURTW official said: “over 15 vehicles including long trucks, buses and commercial cars were intercepted by the armed bandits who selected their victims from their look and dressing and herded them into the bush.
“We learnt that the kidnappers have started communicating and negotiating with the families of their victims, demanding for ransoms in millions of Naira.
“A man and a woman were killed today while four additional passengers were also kidnapped.
“As an official of NURTW we have warned our members to henceforth stop plying the route until there is adequate security in the area.”
Meanwhile, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Yusuf Buratai has charged troops to end the wanton killings and destruction of property in Birnin Gwari
local government in Kaduna state by armed bandits in three weeks.

Speaking when he flagged-off the 2 Battalion Forward Operation Base (FOB) at the Birnin-Gwari axis of Kaduna state, the army chief charged troops to go after the bandits and wipe them out.

They should report that Fulani herdsmen kidnapped them instead of calling them bandits.

Nigeria can never get it right until it's restructured or disintegrated
