BREAKING: Herdsmen attack travellers on Abuja-Keffi Expressway

Armed robbers suspected to be Fulani herdsmen on Wednesday attacked travellers on the ever-busy Abuja-Keffi Expressway, carting away mobile phones and money from them.

The robbery took place at about 10am on the Expressway close to a village called Barde, after Gidan Waya in Kaduna State, a few kilometres from Jos, Plateau state capital.

The robbers numbering about ten, with five of them wielding dangerous weapons, including guns and machetes, came from the bush, stopped vehicles and ordered passengers to lie facedown.

Our correspondent who was in a vehicle which was a few distance from them saw market women and others frisked at gunpoint.

Ironically, the incident took place between two police checkpoints.

The robbers fled into the bush after 30 minutes of successful operation, when they sighted some soldiers from Keffi in Nasarawa state.

Some of the victims claimed the robbers were Fulani as they understood the language they conversed in.

A woman who was on a business trip to Jos for her boss wept uncontrollably, having lost a huge amount of money.

She begged that our correspondent should relay the incident to her boss, and from his exclamation, it was obvious that a big money has gone.
