Two persons were reportedly killed while several others were abducted during an attack by bandits in Anguwan Auta, Gonin Gora area of Kaduna.

A source said the bandits shot sporadically as they stormed the community on Wednesday night and invaded about 10 houses.

The source said some of the residents who confronted the bandits sustained injuries in the process.

However, some youths in the community on Thursday, blocked the Kaduna-Abuja highway for several hours in protest against the attack.

The protesters were later dispersed by security personnel led by members of the security council in the state.

In a statement on Thursday, Samuel Aruwan, commissioner for internal security and home affairs, warned the residents against blocking access to public roads during protest.

“The Kaduna state security council has warned against blockage of public roads and harassment of innocent citizens by persons conducting protests,” the statement reads.

“This follows the blockage of the Gonin Gora axis of the Kaduna-Abuja road by some protesters on Thursday morning, in response to reports of a bandit attack in Unguwan Auta of Gonin Gora general area, Chikun LGA, thus denying commuters access through the route.

“The members of the security council, comprising the commissioner of police, Audu Ali, director of department of state services, Abdul Adamu Eneche, Garrison commander, One Division Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Muhammad Kana, and the overseeing commissioner, ministry of internal security and home affairs, in the company of security forces, dismantled the road blocks erected and subsequently opened up the road for use by motorists.

“Members of the Kaduna state security council while interacting with community leaders, expressed dissatisfaction with the menace of blocking roads, a situation which infringes on the rights of citizens and travelers using these roads and other public utilities.

“As of the time of this security update, citizens and motorists are plying the Gonin Gora axis of Kaduna-Abuja road without obstruction.”
