ARMED ATTACK

 


KADUNA STATE

 

Bandits abduct students, travelers in Kaduna, burn eight vehicles.

Bandits in the early hours of Tuesday abducted students and other travelers along the notorious Birnin-Gwari highway in Kaduna State.

They also burnt eight vehicles conveying students to their examination for admission into the School of Health at Makarfi, scheduled for Kaduna State University.

The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of Birnin Gwari Emirate Progressive Union (BEPU) , Idris Saidu, also confirmed this in a statement.

According to the statement, the bandits laid siege on three different locations on the highway forcing motorists to make a u-turn.

Those who were not lucky fell into the trap set by the bandits and were subsequently abducted.

He said. “Today May 31, 2022, terrorists along Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna highway intercepted a convoy of motorists with security escorts between Kuriga and Manini near Udawa and prey on unspecified number of
people that were abducted into the bush.

The statement added, “In the last four days terrorists had lay siege on motorists on Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna highway, abducting as well as killing and wounded many innocent citizens, yet our people are reduced
to silence mode with no reportage of the ugly situation nor any move by the authorities to show concerned on the deteriorating security around Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna highway.

“In the sad event today, eight vehicles were set ablaze by the terrorists, while unaccounted number of innocent motorists mostly women and children were waylaid into the bush by the terrorists for ransom.

“It is evidently clear that, unholy marriage of bandits and Ansaru (Boko Haram) has declared a total war on our people, yet the political will by the authorities to honor their oaths of office to protect
lives and property of our citizens remains a mirage.

“While politicians are engaged on their mission to get to power come 2023, none of the gladiators seeking for elections has any agenda of emancipating our people from the bondage of terrorists and miscreants.
More so, none of these politicians deems it fit to visit Birnin-Gwari to either see delegates, but rather called delegates to Kaduna for consultations.

“We had always appreciated efforts of security personnel in their passion to curtail the precarious Insecurity bedeviling Birnin-Gwari general area. But, our people have reached a point of no return,
hence the need for the people of Birnin-Gwari and communities along the Kaduna-Birnin-Gwari highway to halt with immediate effect traveling on this notorious highway from tomorrow till security situation improves.

“This organisation hereby advises all our citizens to exercise maximum restraint and obey all rules of the land and seclude themselves in prayers for Allah intervention to deal with the terrorists and
their collaborators within our communities. Equally, we pray for the safe return of our people, mostly women and children that were abducted.

“We are citizens of this country and not prodigal sons that were left wandering, like “Sheep’s without Shepherd”. Enough is Enough.”

crime and criminality.

ONDO STATE

Tragedy as auto crash claims family of five in Ondo.

Tragedy struck in the late hours of Tuesday in Akure, the Ondo State capital, following the death of a family of five who died in an auto crash.

The victims, a father, mother, and their three children lost their lives when the car they were riding in rammed into a stationary heavy-duty truck.

The accident occurred around 10:00 pm on Tuesday in the Oluwatuyi area of the Ijoka axis.

The man, who was said to have driven an Akure taxi-painted car with his family, was headed home from the Shoprite area along Ijo-Mimo road, which is under construction when they
met their untimely death.

According to sources, the driver was at high speed when the accident occurred.

An eyewitness, who is also a taxi driver, stated that there was no way the deceased would not have seen such a huge truck.

He went on to say that the motorist must have been driving at high speed, exacerbating the impact of the collision and that he was under the influence of alcohol. He claimed that
while they tried to recover their remains, the man reeked of alcohol.

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, SP Fumilayo Odunlami, confirmed the incident.

With the identities of the victims yet to be revealed, their remains have been deposited at the morgue of the University Medical Teaching Hospital, UNIMEDTH, Akure.
