Bandits Abduct 50 Residents In Zamfara, Kill Four In Fresh Attacks


The attack, which was the third attack in the past week, took place on Sunday midnight.

No fewer than 50 residents of Giran Namaye town in the Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State have reportedly been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

But the identities of the abducted victims are yet to be confirmed as details of the incident remained sketchy.

Muhammad Shehu, the Police Public Relations Officer of the Zamfara State command, confirmed the incident on Monday.

He also said four persons were also killed by the gunmen during the attack.

Shehu said the attackers, who came in large numbers, invaded the town around midnight on Sunday, killed four persons and abducted 50 others.

He, however, said that the police tactical operatives had been deployed to the area.
