Nigerian Army rescues six abducted students of Zamfara varsity

The Nigerian army has freed six students abducted from the Federal University of Gusau in Zamfara State.

The Sabon-Gida community in the Bungudu Local Government Area in the state was invaded by suspected bandits in the early hours of Friday, September 22.

Sabon-Gida village is located about 20 kilometers from Gusau’s state capital, beside the major campus of the Federal University of Gusau.

It was said that the bandits seized roughly 24 students, most of whom were female.

A resident of Sabon-Gida, Nazeer Sabon-Gida, explained 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 stated that the bandits were heavily involved with the army troops, but that due to the way the bandits operate, one group would move with the abducted victims while the other would remain behind to defend the first group.

He went on to say that while the first group was leaving with the students, the second group attacked the troops in a gun battle.
