Armed terrorists, otherwise known as bandits, have attacked the convoy of the emir of Bungudu Hassan Attahiru along AbujaKaduna highway.

Mr Attahiru, who is a monarch in Zamfara State, was on his way to Abuja when the kidnappers struck.

Credible sources who confirmed the abduction of the monarch to DAILY NIGERIAN said the attackers opened fire on the convoy and successfully demobilized some of the vehicles.

One of the four policemen in the emir’s convoy was shot dead by the assailants.

“The kidnappers hid in the shelterbelt of eucalyptus trees at about three points along the road. Those at the middle first opened the fire on the convoy, before those in the front started firing sporadically,” said the source.

The source also said that other commercial and private vehicles were also seen by the roadside, signifying multiple abductions of travelers.

Kaduna State Police Command is yet to speak on the incident.
