Bandits have shot dead a driver, simply identified as Danladi Jobe, and abducted two others along the Abuja-Kaduna highway.

A resident resident of Jere, Yahuza Alhassan, told correspondents on the phone on Monday, that the incident happened around 9:33 pm at Dogon-Fili, a few kilometers away from Jere town.

He said the deceased was returning from a neighbouring village market where when the bandits suddenly emerged from the bush and opened on the car, killing the driver instantly.

Alhassan identified one of the victims whisked away as Shuaibu, a farmer, adding that the bandits took away about N1 million cash from him (Shuaibu).

“The bandits after killing the driver, now went after the man, who is a farmer and dispossessed im of N980,000 cash, before they now whisked him away alongside one other person from the car into the bush,” he said.

Newsmen also gathered that a similar incident occurred last week when suspected bandits opened fire on a commuter Hiace bus near Gadan-Malam along the same highway and whisked travellers on board into the bush.

The spokesman of the Kaduna state police command, DSP Mansur Hassan, has not responded to calls or a text message sent him about the incident as of the time of filing this report.
