Five people inside a Golf car from Birnin-Gwari in Kaduna state were kidnapped around 10.30am, while four haulage vehicles and their occupants were also abducted.
This incident come barely ten hours after the arrest of a fake army officer by a captain in the Nigerian Army currently in a holiday after his assignment at Sambisa forest.
This was contained in a statement signed by Chairman, Birnin-Gwari Vanguards for Security and Good Governance Ibrahim Abubakar Nagwari on Sunday.
The statement said armed men intercepted five vehicles at “Tashar Tsuntsaye” near Kuriga along Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna highways.
The statement called on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency in Birnin-Gwari until all terrorists and the armed bandits are subdued and degraded.
It urged residents of the area to remain calm with a forty-eight hours ultimatum to the army to inform the general public, the true identity of the fake army colonel and his collaborators in Birnin-Gwari no matter how highly placed they are in the community.
Also we urged the government of Kaduna State to show the world that they are concerned about the deteriorating security situation in Birnin-Gwari by a simple statement that will calm the nerves of the people they abandoned since after the massacre of seventy-six people at Gwaska.
Confirming the development Spokesman for Kaduna Police Command, Yakubu Sabo, confirmed the incident, saying the police were mobilized to search the general area.
