Apex Northern socio-cultural group, the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has described insecurity on the Kaduna-Abuja Expressway as akin to “terrorism”.

Yawe said it was high time the government lived up to its responsibility of securing the lives and properties of the citizenry.

National Publicity Secretary of ACF, Emmanuel Yawe stated this in a Monday statement.

He said that the ACF found it unacceptable that Nigerians are being terrorised, kidnapped, and killed on the road daily.

“This is a national shame and completely unacceptable to our forum.

“The latest victim of this act of terror is Alhaji Hamidu Sagir, a retired Director of Protocol at the Federal Capital Development Authority FCDA and a governorship aspirant in Zamfara State who was shot and killed at Rijana.

“Indeed Rijana has become a popular spot where these terrorist attacks are committed on a daily and routine basis. This is a challenge that security agencies must overcome.

“We are worried that every day Nigerians are attacked at this same spot and our security men seem helpless in sorting out the security problems that make such attacks on the same spot easy.

“The government – both the Kaduna and the Federal Government itself which owns the highway appears to be helpless in securing the lives of Nigerians on this road. We call on both governments to save us from this security nightmare by saving the lives of our innocent citizens.

“We condole with the immediate family of the slain Hamida Sagir and the Zamfara State Government. We pray Almighty Allah to give them the fortitude to bear the tragedy,” Yawe’s statement read in part.
