“The Zamfara state police in collaboration with the state ministry for security and home affairs have successfully secured the unconditional release of one hundred kidnapped victims who were abducted from Manawa village of Mutunji district in Dansadau Emirate of Maru local government area of the State,” Shehu said.

“The victims, who were in custody of their abductors for 42 days, were released without giving any financial or material gain and they will be medically checked and debriefed before being reunited with their respective families.

“The Commissioner of Police, Mr Hussaini Rabiu, warned the recalcitrant bandits to renounce criminalities and embrace peace or face the full wrath of the law. The command uses this medium to call on the good people of Zamfara state to support the police and other security agencies with credible information about the hideouts, movements and other activities of criminal elements.”
