Army Operatives Rescue Six Abducted Students of Zamfara Uni

It was alleged that over 24 students were Kidnapped by the Kidnappers from the institution.

The Nigerian Army Troops have rescued six kidnapped students of the Federal University of Gusau in Zamfara State.

It was gathered that, in the early hours of Friday, September 22, suspected bandits invaded the Sabon-Gida community of the Bungudu Local Government Area in the state.

Sabon-Gida village is a community opposite the main campus of the Federal University of Gusau that is about 20 km from the state capital, Gusau.

According to reports about 24 students were abducted by the bandits with most of them mostly female.

A witness who resides at Sabon-Gida, Nazeer Sabon-Gida, explained that the bandits invaded the community around 3:00 am and started shooting indiscriminately.

“We have yet to confirm the number of students kidnapped because the bandits entered three hostels and kidnapped all the students there. It is difficult to ascertain their numbers now.

He said the bandits were seriously engaged with the army troops but that the way the bandits operate, they will divide themselves into two, one group will move with the kidnapped victims while the other will stay behind to protect the first group.

He added that while the first group had left with the students the second group engaged the army in a gun duel.
