Bandits kill two passengers, abduct 40 in Taraba


Bandits on Wednesday evening killed two passengers and abducted  40 people along Gembu-Bali road in Taraba State.

Daily Trust gathered that the bandits blocked the Jamtari/ Gayam axis along Genbu-Bali road, abducted passengers, and moved them into the forest surrounded by mountains.

The bandits, it was further gathered, shot at approaching vehicles, thereby forcing drivers to stop. Two of the passengers in a commercial bus died as a result of the targeted shooting.

The bandits, Daily Trust learnt, were part of the bandits that relocated to the state from Zamfara and Katsina States in recent weeks.

The police spokesman in Taraba State, DSP Usman Abdullahi, confirmed the incident but said the number of passengers abducted is yet to be ascertained.
