Some traders traveling to Kano were reportedly abducted along the dreaded Birnin Gwari-Kaduna road on Wednesday. 

Reports said the traders’ convoy was attacked by a number of bandits, who later took them away into the forests in the morning.

Reaction from the police in Kaduna on the incident, is still being awaited. 

A local, Malam Umaru said the traders were travelling in a convoy of over 20 vehicles with police escort. 

According to him, the bandits struck at a bend near Udawa after Buruku, abducted not fewer than 70 traders from Umaru’s community and scores of others from neighboring villages.

He said in Hausa language that calls on the phone of some of the missing traders, were answered by the bandits, a development that confirmed the about a hundred traders were in captivity.
