No fewer than seven people have been recorded to have been abducted in Bungudu town, headquarters of Bungudu Local Government Area of Zamfara State, as armed bandits invaded the town.



The Daily Post gathered that the terrorists arrived at the town located about 20 Kilometers away from Gusau, the State capital, with heavily armed weapons and abducted seven persons, including two males and five females, and also killed one person.

A resident of the town, Alhaji Ibrahim Bungudu, told the Daily Post that the abductees were Prince Abdulrahman Hassan Attahiru, a son to the Emir of Bungudu; a former State program officer of the IPAD; three wives of one businessman, Alhaji Umaru Sanda; the wife of one Abdullahi Zubairu; and the wife of one Hamisu Rabi’u.

He, however, said no ransom has been demanded by the kidnappers, and the families of the abducted have refused to speak to newsmen regarding the incident.

When contacted, a family member of one of the abducted persons who represents the Maru/Bungudu federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Abdulmalik Zubairu, said the incident was devastating and regrettable, saying the government will do everything possible to ensure the restoration of peace and tranquility in the state.

Recall that in the early hours of August 7, 2023, bandits attacked divisional police headquarters in Bungudu and killed one ASP, Nura Ibrahim, who was to be decorated with a new rank (ASP) on that day.

The resurgence of banditry in Zamfara State is attracting the attention of all concerned authorities, especially security agencies, which also lose scores of personnel in active service.

The Police have yet to react to the recent reports of abduction in the state.
