An unknown number of persons were killed and others abducted when terrorists attacked motorists on the Funtua-Gusau Highway in Zamfara State.

A former member of the House of Representatives, Kabiru Yahaya, was among those injured in the attack which occurred on Wednesday afternoon, November 1, 2023. 

His media aide, Musbahu Aliyu, who spoke to the Premium Times, said that the attackers blocked the highway between Kucheri–Magazu in Tsafe Local Government around 3:30 p.m.

“The terrorists timed the arrival of vehicles to and from Gusau and started to shoot indiscriminately which led to the blockage of the road,” he said. 

He said his boss was the only one taken to Tsafe General Hospital alive. 

“No one knows the number of those killed or abducted. They abducted all the passengers in the first vehicle,” Aliyu said.

He said his principal had been transferred to another health facility in the state capital, Gusau.
