Chikun Residents Protest over Bandits Attack in Kaduna

Residents of Goningora in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State have blocked the Abuja-Kaduna highway following the attack on their community by bandits.

During the attack on Wednesday night, several members of the community were reportedly kidnapped with several others injured.

Angry residents took to the streets on Thursday morning, blocking the busy Abuja-Kaduna highway.

The development has caused heavy traffic on the road, with many motorists and travelers left stranded.

Two people including a member of the Civilian Joint Task Force were reportedly killed in the attack.

The latest attack on the Goningora community comes barely a week after soldiers killed a notorious bandit Kingpin, Boderi Isyaku, and some of his fighters in the same Chikun LGA.

A military armoured vehicle was said to have been set ablaze by the bandits when soldiers attempted to repel them.
