A prominent Kaduna-based politician, Alhaji Lawal Buba was at the weekend kidnapped along Kaduna-Abuja, reports ITRealms.
Disclosing this, Senator Shehi Sani, said the kidnap occurred on Thursday evening by 6:30pm along Bwari Jere Kaduna road, as the road has become busier due to closure of Abuja Airport for repairs by the Federal Government.
According to his Facebook post, on Thursday, 9th March by 6.30pm, a gang of armed men with sophisticated weapons stopped vehicles along Bwari Jere Kaduna road and opened fire on motorists.
He also said that one of the victims was his Kaduna south Coordinator, Alhaji Lawal Adamu.
“They left many people in the pool of their blood and kidnapped others into the bush including a prominent Kaduna politician in the name of Alhaji Lawal Buba,” he said.
Further, Senator Sani said, the police arrived at the scene afterwards and took the victims to Bwari General Hospital.
“Right now the victims are receiving medical attention at the National Hospital Abuja. Some of them sustained life threatening injuries," he said.
However, those conversant with the route have warned those using the Kaduna Airport to reach Abuja and mostly not using the FGN buses for the Kaduna-Abuja leg, to ensure they arrive Kaduna by at most 5pm to enable them transit in good time to Abuja.
“Please always ensure that you use the early flights so that you reach Abuja by 4 - 5pm latest,” one of the concerned Nigerians advised.
Also, our source urged people to avoid the Bwari-Jere short cut and go through Suleja route.
