Zamfara abductions: Policemen storm forests to rescue victims


The Nigeria Police Command in Zamfara State has denied media reports that 40 people were killed and 70 nursing mothers and children abducted at Tungar Baushe in the Maru Local Government Area of the state.

The denial is contained in a statement in Gusau on Thursday by the Public Relations Officer of the command, SP Muhammad Shehu.

“Ignore the outrageous number of kidnapped victims being circulated on various media platforms.

“The number quoted is misleading and an attempt to create fear in the minds of Zamfara residents.

According to the police spokesman, security teams are on an extensive bush combing of the surrounding forests aimed at rescuing the kidnapped victims.

“Members of the public are enjoined to remain calm, discountenance the reported figures and assist security forces in the ongoing operations,” he said.
