Terrorists had turned the very busy Abuja-Kaduna Highway to their playground over the last 7 years with hundreds of people having been killed or kidnapped for ransom.

The development had led those who can afford it to take a short flight to Kaduna from Abuja or take the Abuja-Kaduna Passenger Train Service which had provided succour to people who travel to and from Kaduna to the nations’ capital.
