Around 4 p.m. on Sunday, the attackers opened fire on travellers near Rijana on the busy expressway, killing him.

He was “among those hit by the kidnappers’ bullets,” according to security sources who spoke on condition of anonymity to Newsmen.

Many passengers who attempted to flee were shot at, according to sources, while those who cooperated were herded into the bush.

The incident happened in the Rijana area, according to a survivor who did not want to be identified.

“The kidnappers took advantage of the road damage,” he said, “which forced on-coming and off-coming motorists to move slowly on a single lane.”

At the time of filing this report, Mohammed Jalige, spokesman for the Kaduna State Police Command, did not respond to our reporter’s call.
