Fresh reports have it that a new special task force comprising men of the Nigerian army as well as police officers have now been deployed to specifically patrol the “dangerous” Kaduna-Abuja highway. This particular road has gained so much bad reputation in recent times because of the many reports of kidnappings and armed robbery incidents that have occurred on the road. It is definitely going to be a breath of fresh air for motorist plying the Kaduna-Abuja road when they see the joint security teams patrolling this road which is already getting tagged as “hunted”.

Samuel Aruwan, the commissioner of Internal security in Kaduna State has also confirmed this new report that special security operatives have been deployed to patrol the Kaduna-Abuja road. The commissioner advises the general public to disregard rumours claiming that the “dangerous” road has now become deserted by travellers who are afraid of being kidnapped by bandits.
Mr Aruwan even confirmed that he recently accompanied the joint security team to patrol the long road which spans across 3 different LGAs. He says that now traffic is now flowing as it should be while assuring that security men of the “Operation Thunder Strike” are currently doing their job on the road. As of the time of writing this report, some vehicular movement has been confirmed on the Kaduna-Abuja road while commercial activities have also been confirmed in Sabon Gaya, Doka, Jere, Kateri, Rijana, Akilubu and other towns surrounding the road.
While the Kaduna-Abuja road is being announced as safe, many people are still worried about the recent armed robbery attack on a Bullion van in Ajah, Lagos state. Below is a press video showing the bullion van moments after the attack.
