The lawmaker who stated this when he featured in Thunder Blowers TV show Dawache Kazo said the security situation along Gusau-Dansadau road, has raised a lot of suspicion that people no longer have confidence travelling on the road due to constant kidnappings and killings by armed bandits.

He said even on Tuesday the bandits took over the road, abducted many people and eventually killed one of the residents whose dead body is yet to be evacuated for burial.

The lawmaker said the SS3 students from Dansadau area were earlier instructed to move to Gusau for their NECO examination due to insecurity bedeviling the area, noting that they were released for Sallah festivities after the examination started.

He said to move the students back to Gusau after the Sallah activities was challenging due to resurgence of fresh attacks and abductions along Gusau-Dansadai road by the armed bandits.
