He said the terrorists blocked the road, and immediately opened fire on motorists who were travelling that road, and in the process, took several passengers away to an unknown destination.

Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State has been notorious for cases of banditry and kidnapping, spanning over five years.

This is in spite of efforts made by security agencies and the Kaduna State Government to tackle the menace.
