Angry residents of Kakau Ward in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Saturday morning blocked the ever busy Kaduna-Abuja Highway over rising insecurity in their area, seeing many residents being kidnapped.
They also claimed four people have recently lost their lives.
A 49-year-old resident of the community, Alhaji Ibrahima Dauda, said they have had sleepless nights for months as kidnappers always attack them, and dispossess them of their valuables before taking their neighbors to their den.
“We are tired of kidnappers who at will invaded our community to abduct our natives, and residents. Just four weeks ago, four of our members were kidnapped. A large sum of money was demanded. We are peasant farmers, we don’t have such money to pay.
“For weeks, we did not sleep due to fear of attack. ” Dauda said
