The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) on Monday in Kaduna mourned the Zamfara ex-governorship candidate who was killed in Rijana Kaduna Abuja expressway recently, describing the regular abduction, killings of innocent passengers and travellers along the Abuja /Kaduna highway by bandits as a national shame

Suspected gunmen had on Sunday killed Hamida Sagir, an ex- governorship candidate, kidnapped his police orderly and several other travellers along Kaduna Abuja highway

Reacting on Monday, Emmanuel Yawe, National Publicity Secretary, of the ACF in a statement, expressed worry that Nigerians are daily being terrorised, kidnapped, and killed without due regard to human lives.

He said the continuous killings of innocent Nigerians on the highway posed a national shame and described it as unacceptable to the forum

He said the latest victim of the terror is Hamida Sagir, a retired Director of Protocol at the Federal Capital Development Authority FCDA and a former governorship aspirant in Zamfara State.

He was shot and killed at Rijana, on the Abuja Kaduna expressway.

He said Rijana has become a popular spot where terrorist attacks are committed on a daily and routine basis.

” 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.” He said

The statement appealed to the federal government, and the Kaduna State government not to relent efforts at ensuring 24hours vigilant on the road by the security agents

The group condoled with the immediate family of the slain Hamida Sagir and the Zamfara State government and prayed the Almighty Allah to give them the fortitude to bear the tragedy.
