The highway connecting Anka to the Emirates of Gummi and Zuru in Kebbi State is one of the busiest commuter roads, especially on Fridays. Local traders rely on it to attend the weekly market days in Anka and Gummi.

Ibrahim Polo, 45, a commercial driver who travels from Gummi to Gusau through Anka on a daily basis, bemoaned the fact that he had to transport six passengers from Gummi to Gusau.

“When we arrived in Anka, we discovered approximately 100 colleague drivers parked in an abrupt parking position near Daki Takwas village.” This is because the terrorists have returned to the highway in an attempt to capture us,” he stated.
