In the early morning hours of Friday, September 22, suspected bandits carried out a brazen abduction of an unspecified number of students from the Federal University of Gusau.
According to reports, a significant group of armed bandits descended upon the Sabon-Gida community in the Bungudu Local Government Area of Zamfara State, commencing a spree of indiscriminate shooting at approximately 3 a.m.
The criminals targeted three separate student hostels, forcibly seizing the students residing there.
An eyewitness reported, “They entered the town around 3 a.m. and started shooting indiscriminately.
“We have yet to confirm the exact count of kidnapped students due to the bandits’ intrusion into three different hostels. Ascertaining their precise numbers is currently a challenging task.”
As of now, neither the school authorities nor the state police command have issued any official statements regarding this distressing incident.
