Five students of the institution were abducted by bandits last yesterday night, a situation which has angered the students to block the road as a result of which several motorists were left stranded for several hours.
All Eefforts by the security agents to disperse the crowd proved abortive as many of them sat on the main road, calling on the school management and security agencies to take urgent action on the security situation in the institution.
The Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Muazu Abubakar who was at the scene of the incident appealed to the students to allow motorists to pass but they refused to listen to him.
He assured that, efforts would be taken by the institution to ensure adequate security in the institution, but the students insisted that they would not go anywhere.
Similarly, some trailer truck drivers have also blocked Gusau- Sokoto road along Gada Biyu this morning in a protest against the attitudes of the security agencies whose mounted a road block on the roads.
A trailer truck driver who spoke to Radio Nigeria Correspondent in Gusau, said the security personnel are extorting money from them and coursing on necessary traffic jam.
Vehicles were seen packed on the road, incapacitated and stranded, while efforts to reach Zamfara Police Command’s Public relations officer ASP Yazeed Abubakar to comment on the issues proof abortive.
