Must read

Two sons of a former commissioner in Zamfara, Bello Dankande, and two others, including a personnel of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, were on Tuesday, August 18, 2020, abducted.

This is coming on the heels of the rescue of the two wives and daughter of the slain Bauchi House of Assembly lawmaker as well as the rescue of a Syrian national abducted in Lagos.

Muhammad Shehu, the spokesman of the Police Command in Zamfara, said in a statement in Gusau that the gunmen killed one person and injured another.

He said the incident took place at the residence of the former Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in Gamji, Bakura Local Government Area of the state.

He said: “At about 4:30 am, a large number of armed men invaded the house and kidnapped two of his children and two others, including an NSCDC officer on guard duty at the house.

One person was shot dead while a woman was wounded in the process.” Shehu said the command had deployed its operatives to search and rescue the victims as well as apprehend the assailants.

“The command further assures the former commissioner and indeed all the people of the state that it would do everything possible to get the abductees released and back home as was the case of the six kidnapped victims, including two district heads of Basasa and Ruwan Gizo in Talata Mafara and Bakura local government areas.
