Troops Rescue 6 Kidnapped Zamfara Varsity Students, 18 Still Missing

Troops of the Nigerian army have rescued six of the kidnapped students of the Federal University of Gusau in Zamfara State.

WikkiTimes had earlier reported that gunmen suspected to be bandits abducted an unspecified number of students from the Federal University of Gusau in Zamfara State on Friday morning.

It was later gathered that the bandits invaded the Sabon-Gida community of the Bungudu Local Government Area in the state and abducted about 24 students most of them females.

Bandits Abduct Unspecified Number of Students in Zamfara

A resident of Sabon-Gida, Nazeer Sabon-Gida, told TheGuardian that the bandits invaded the community around 3:00 am and started shooting indiscriminately.

“We have yet to confirm the number of students kidnapped because the bandits entered three hostels and kidnapped all the students there. It is difficult to ascertain their numbers now.

He said the bandits were seriously engaged with the army troops but that the way the bandits operate, they will divide themselves into two, one group will move with the kidnapped victims while the other will stay behind to protect the first group.

He added that while the first group had left with the students the second group engaged the army in a gun duel.
