Many people including five occupants of a Golf 3 vehicle and the occupants of four haulage vehicles are said to have been kidnapped by bandits in Tashar Tsuntsaye near Kuriga village along Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna road. 

The incident which occurred on Sunday at 10.30am is coming barely 10 hours after a fake army officer was arrested in the area.

 Speaking on the development, the Chairman of the Birnin Gwari Vanguards for Security and Good Governance, Ibrahim Abubakar Nagwari issued a 48 hours ultimatum to the army to inform the general public on the true identity of the fake army colonel and his collaborators in Birnin-Gwari no matter how highly placed they are in the community. 

He added, “We are calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency in Birnin-Gwari until all terrorists in the armed bandits are subdued and degraded”.

 He urged residents to remain calm and urged the government of Kaduna State to “show the world that they are concerned about the deteriorating security situation in Birnin-Gwari by a simple statement that will calm the nerves of our people they abandoned since after the massacre of 76 people at Gwaska.” 

“As we await response of all authorities concerned, we once again urge the peaceful people of Birnin-Gwari that are surviving without peace and security to remain calm and not take laws into their hands,” he said. 

Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Yakubu Sabo Abubakar, did not respond to calls made to his mobile lines by our reporter as at the time of filing this report.
