A Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Marshal Inspector 1, Ardo Njiga, was killed by some gunmen along Abuja – Kaduna highway while two other marshals were abducted.
The Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, identified one of those kidnapped as Senior Road Marshal Assistant, Garba Bello.
Naija News gathered that the deceased was traveling in a commercial bus, alongside other passengers when the armed kidnappers attacked them at about 6.30am, at Sabo-Wuse Area, on the Niger axis of the highway.
“The marshals took permission to be with their families in Kaduna, at the weekend, and were on their way back to Abuja when the attack took place this morning (yesterday).
“Njiga was killed at the scene while Garba and the third marshal were taken to an unknown destination, alongside the other occupants of the bus.
“The matter is now with the security agencies, and it is our hope that our men are rescued and brought back to us alive,” Kazeem said.
Saddened by the tragic incident, the FRSC Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi commiserated with families of the victims.
