“We urge our members and the general public to include him and other captives in their prayers while the association work with relevant authorities to ensure his timely release in good health,” Dr Bature said.

The Gusau- Dansadau road has become a nightmare for travellers, with many passengers avoiding the route.

Several people plying the road have been kidnapped or killed.

“Bandits are intercepting vehicles to abduct the people onboard and sometimes they would just open fire on moving vehicles; many casualties have been recorded as a result,” a resident, Bala Ali Isah, said.

In a related development, a Polytechnic Lecturer in Zamfara State who doubles as the Student Affairs Officer of the school, Sanusi Halilu, has been killed by his abductors despite the payment of five million naira ransom for his release.

Africa Dialy News, New York reports that Sanusi Halilu was killed after nearly five weeks in captivity.

A close source told reporters under the condition of anonymity that a five million Naira ransom was paid to the bandits on Tuesday in a bush near some villages along Kaduna – Zaria road, in Kaduna State.

The bandits confirmed his death less than 24 hours after the payment of the ransom, an indication that he was killed long ago even when negotiations for his release were on.
