Police Tactical Operatives, in conjunction with the military have rescued 21 abducted almajirai in Zamfara State, after a gun battle with suspected armed kidnappers.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, SP Muhammad Shehu, who disclosed this Saturday, said that a distress call was received from Kucheri Village in Tsafe LGA that bandits, in their large numbers,  blocked the Gusau-Funtua Federal Highway at Kucheri axis and abducted unspecified number of commuters in five different vehicles.

“The security operatives succeeded in rescuing 21 kidnapped children, including two  females who were coming from Rini Village in Bakura LGA to Katsina State for the Almajiri  School along with their teacher , Lawali Ibrahim. The said scholar, Lawali Ibrahim, and the driver of their Hummer Bus Vehicle are among the victims that are currently in captivity.

“The Commissioner of Police, Ayuba Elkanah,  had already sent a reinforcement of police operatives to complement the efforts of the  joint security operatives currently working to rescue the remaining victims and apprehend the perpetrators,” he said.

The command called on the public especially drivers and passengers to desist from night journey because it was mostly used by the bandits to block roads and kidnapped commuters in the state.
