Valentine Chinyem



Drivers plying the Kaduna-Abuja express road this morning, prevented other road users in protest of the killing of a commercial driver by policemen on the road.

The driver of Peugeot J-5 bus was shot by the officers around Olam, while on his way to Kaduna around 7:30 am.

Other drivers who saw what happened came down to protest the shooting of the driver and parked their cars on the road blocking the highway.

An eye witness said the drivers have refused to move their cars and have blocked both the road leading to and from Abuja causing a lock down along the route.

An eyewitness said no car is currently moving along the route as it has been totally blocked but that more security personnel have been deployed to the place.

The Kaduna State commissioner for internal security, Samuel Aruwan however assured motorists that the matter is being handled.

“Kaduna-Abuja Road gridlock around Olam Company. We are working and the road will be cleared in a jiffy,” he said.
