Troops Rescue Nine Kidnapped Passengers On Kaduna-Abuja Road by Drinokrane: 1:30pm On Nov 16
The Kaduna State Government has disclosed that troops carrying out internal security operations rescued nine persons kidnapped along the Kaduna-Abuja Road on Sunday afternoon, Igbere TV reports.

The Kaduna State Government made known in a statement, that it received operational feedback from the Defence Headquarters’s Operation Thunder Strike (OPTS) following Sunday’s incident, and inquiries from citizens on the development.

The feedback goes thus:

Troops of the Operation Thunder Strike on a routine patrol along Akilubu-Gidan Busa axis on the Kaduna-Abuja road, received a distress call at around 4PM, of bandits blocking the main highway.

The armed bandits opened fire on a bus, forcing the driver to halt.

On getting to the location, the armed bandits had already kidnapped nine persons from an 18-seater bus with registration No. Kaduna: MKA-151.

The troops immediately mobilized and engaged the bandits in a firefight and in the process rescued nine persons kidnapped who later rejoined their colleagues after their rescue and a head count. (Pictures attached).

Regrettably, the driver and a passenger seated close to him lost their lives.

The Kaduna State Government sends its condolences to their families and prays for God to grant them eternal rest.

Following this summary from the military, the government assures citizens and commuters plying the route that any emerging developments regarding the unfortunate incident will be communicated.

The government also assures citizens of Kaduna State that it will continue to work hard, in collaboration with the Federal Government to improve the security of the highway. It is also working with the Governments of Zamfara, Katsina, Niger, Nasarawa, Plateau, Sokoto and Kano States, as well as the Military, Police, DSS and relevant stakeholders on enhancing the security situation in the region.

why snapping them? and why is our NA repelling instead of gunning them down and arresting them? in few days time, those beast will returned back to highway to continue their atrocities


Northern politicians should continue to pamper these beasts till hit their family members, how many bandit caught is prosecuted? and you want insecurities to end with the pampering method of Fulani herdsmen turned bandits, continue giving them sweet names o at least that your population needs to be reduce


dumb blockhead people

I thought they said it's fake news.



If you can use it for photo optics, claim it. If the thing is your power or you've fumbled it OR even sef you don't even know wtf you're talking about, just deny and say fake news.

Naija authorities with their self-contradictions.

Congrats to the rescued though and kudos to the troops for a job well done.
