Panic as soldiers warmed the air when suspected hoodlums hijacked trailers loaded with food in the Suleja Area of Niger State.

Alhassan Abdullahi, a witness, told journalists that the hoodlums, who burned tyres on the road, blocked many trailers coming from Abuja and heading for Kaduna.

He stated that many bags of assorted foodstuffs, including rice, were stolen before soldiers arrived.

He said, “It took the intervention of soldiers who arrived at the scene and started firing gunshots in the air to scare the hoodlums away. But even with that, many of them went away with bags of rice, cartons of spaghetti, and other food items.”

“We learnt commercial motorcycle riders are also planning a protest. They would have done it since yesterday, but we didn’t know what stopped them.”
