Recall that SaharaReporters reported some days ago how several travellers were ambushed by bandits who opened fire on them along the busy Kaduna-Zaria Road in the same state.

Sources said that the assailants struck around 8pm, shooting sporadically at vehicles and abducted the passengers.

Shortly after the terror attack, an undisclosed number of travellers were reported to have whisked away into the bush before the arrival of security operatives.
