Tension as bandits kidnap retired colonel, children in Zamfara

Posted Jan 03, 2023 - 03:09PM by Gnax Oneboss 0

Some terrorists suspected to be bandits have kidnapped a retired colonel, Rabiu Garba, and members of his family in Yandoto, Tsafe Local Government Area, Zamfara state.

According to reports, Garba, who was a former commandant general of the Zamfara State Road Traffic Agency, Zarota, was abducted alongside two of his children and his friend, Malam Yusuf, on Sunday, January 1, 2023.

A local source, Aliyu Bashar told news men that the retired colonel was abducted on his way to Gusau, the state capital.

“What I gathered from some of his relatives is that he (Mr. Garba) was going to Gusau for a meeting that would be holding in the night. He was supposed to go early but there was a family meeting that held him till after Magrib prayers (Sunset prayer) when he left.

“He went with his two children because he has a house there in Gusau with another wife. He was ambushed on the highway,” Bashar said in a phone interview.

Bashar said terrorists have intensified their activities between Tsafe and Gusau. “It’s attacks after attack these days,” he said.

The Zamfara State Police Command spokesperson, Mohammed Shehu, confirmed the abduction to newsmen Monday evening in a phone conversation.

“Yes. We received the report (of the abduction of the retired colonel) but the Command is working tirelessly to rescue them,” he said.

Federal, state and local highways in Zamfara and across Nigeria’s north-west region have become endangered in the last decade when terrorist gangs started operating in the area.

Terrorists gangs regularly attack and abduct motorists and commuters travelling across the region.
