The Nigeria Police Force has rescued at least ten persons abducted on Wednesday in Zamfara State.
The victims were said to have been abducted in Bungudu Local Government Area when terrorist bandits stormed the Gada community.
In the attacks that lasted for hours, the terrorist bandits also killed a district head, Ummaru Bawan Allah, and abducted many others.
However, speaking to journalists on Wednesday, the state’s police commissioner, Ayuba Elkana, confirmed that his men had been able to rescue ten of the abductees.
He added that the rescue mission was successful after a coalition of police officers, soldiers, and vigilante members swung into action by chasing the terrorist bandits.
Zamfara State is one of the northwestern states that the activities of the gunmen have ravaged.
