A servant of the Emir of Zamfara identified as Alhaji Buhari (Shamaki) has, in a video, appealed to the monarch to intervene for their release.

Last week, bandits had attacked the palace of the Emir of Zurmi, Alhaji Bello Muhammad Bunu, killing three people and abducting some residents of the town.

The bandits, who stormed the town around 10pm on Wednesday, according to locals, also attacked the residence of the former Military Administrator of Nasarawa State, Colonel Bala Muhammad Mande (rtd).

The Emir was, however, whisked away by the security agents to Gusau.

In the video, the abducted men were seen with eyes blocked with pieces of cloths while being surrounded by armed bandits, while one of them (Shamaki) urged the Emir to show compassion and aid in their release.

Invoking the name of Allah for mercy and support, he said they are over 600 individuals in dire need for assistance to go back and continue providing food for their families.

He said: “We are calling on the Emir of Zamfara to have sympathy for us, in the name of Allah, and help our release. In the name of Allah, the Emir should have sympathy for us.

“We are just looking for what to eat and feed their families. Even if one has nothing, waking up with something to eat and feed his family is enough. I am your Shamaki, Alhaji Buhari. Please and please, Your Highness, help us your people who are in extreme need for your help. We are over 600 in the bush.”
