Reports coming from Zamfara State have indicated that suspected terrorists operating in northwestern Nigeria have killed four persons and abducted 50 others in an attack they launched on Goran Namaye in Maradun Local Government Area of the state.
Confirming the attack in Gusau on Monday, Muhammad Shehu, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, said the attackers came in their large number, raided the town around midnight on Sunday, and afterwards killed four persons and kidnapped 50 others.
However, he noted that the police tactical operatives had been deployed to the affected area.
According to him, CP Yakubu Elkana has ordered his men to embark on a search-and-rescue operation for the abducted persons immediately.
He added that the CP had assured residents that they would do everything possible and collaborate with other sister security agencies to maintain peace and order in the state.
Zamfara State has over the years been ravaged by the activities of kidnappers and gunmen who incessantly attack communities regularly.
Governor Muhammad Bello Matawalle has vowed to curb the menace on several occasions, but it seems all is to no avail.
