Terrorist On Rampage Kills Man, Abduct Wife In Zamfara

The Zamfara State Police Command reported that bandits attacked and killed a man identified as Ashiru Nagoma and abducted his wife and neighbour in Buluku, an outskirt of Gusau Local Government Area of the state.
The spokesperson for the command, ASP Yazid Abubakar, confirmed to the press on Tuesday.
This was coming on the heels of the post on X (formerly Twitter) made by a Maiduguri-based security expert, Zagazola Makama, who raised an alarm that bandits sneaked into Gusau town to abduct several worshippers in a mosque while observing midnight prayers around 2 am.
“Sad. In the early morning of Tuesday at about 2:00, bandit sneaked into Gusau Town and abducted several worshippers in a Mosque while they were observing tahajjud (midnight) prayers,” he wrote.

However, speaking on the incident, Abubakar stressed that the late Nagoma had resisted an attack by the gunmen, and they, in turn, killed him and abducted his wife and neighbour.
“The bandits did not attack the mosque. They had a target, and it was the man that was attacked. His wife and neighbour were abducted.
“Our rescue team is on top of the situation and is making frantic efforts to make sure that the perpetrators are brought to book and the abducted victims are rescued. An investigation is also ongoing,” he maintained.
The Press had in February reported that bandits abducted scores of worshippers in one of the mosques in Tsafe town, the headquarters of Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State.
