Bandits on Wednesday reportedly abducted an unspecified number of traders travelling to Kano from Birnin Gwari Local Government of Kaduna State. 

The bandits were said to have blocked the highway between Birnin Gwari and Kaduna at Unguwar Yako forest where they abducted the traders. 

When contacted to confirm the development, Kaduna Police spokesperson, ASP Muhammad Jailge did not respond. 

A source, who preferred anonymity, said the victims were likely on a business trip from Birnin Gwari axis to Kano, adding that “we spotted four empty vehicles and they said an unspecified number of persons moving from Birnin-Gwari axis to Kano have been kidnapped.” 

The Birnin-Gwari road has remained a hot spot for kidnappers and bandits who terrorise travellers.
