Why The Government Needs To Tackle The Incessant Abduction Of Citizens Along Abuja-Kaduna Highway

Some alleged bandits attacked and kidnapped some unspecified number of travellers along Abuja-Kaduna road on Sunday afternoon. The Abuja-Kaduna expressway has over the couple of years being infested by criminals who unleashed terror on innocent motorists that were unfortunate to be driving through the road.

It is high time the government takes drastic actions against these criminals that have made the Abuja-Kaduna expressway a living hell for innocent motorists. There is the need to find a permanent solution to this malaise. Providing alternative transportation would not solve the problem instead it would only allow it to fester under the radar of the public.

It is even scarier to think that these bad guys are operating close to the Nigerian capital. It is instructive to note that the more these bandits abduct people the more likely their nefarious activities are receiving a boom as a result of ransoms collected from their victims and from this money they will use to buy arms and also recruit more members into their folds.

Implore the Nigerian security agencies from both Abuja and Kaduna state to send more personnel to patrol that highway around the clock. There should be well coordinated military operations in the hideouts of these bandits. Also, there should be organized covert operations by security operatives in order to catch these criminals unaware. The government needs to act quickly.
