Insecurity:Travellers trapped as angry villagers block Abuja-Kaduna Highway

 

Many travellers are currently trapped on the Abuja-Kaduna highway as angry residents have blocked the road over attacks, especially the killing of a 13-year-old girl by bandits.
The tragic incident occurred at Anguwar Magaji in Chikun Local Government Area of the state.

Residents said bandits stormed the house of the village head and abducted his family as well as other persons in the community.

A resident of the area told Daily Trust that they were not safe at home and their farms.

“We cannot go to our farms and yet they will follow us to our homes to abduct us for ransom. They killed a 13-year-old girl, a security man in the village as well as abducted other residents including the family of the village head,” he said.

He explained that the residents only want security or to be allowed to protect themselves against the bandits.

A witness told Daily Trust that the protesters refused to listen to the plea of security personnel .
