Gunmen suspected to be bandits operating in Zamfara State have abducted a nursing mother and her 14-year-old son, sparing a one-month-old baby.
DAILY POST reports that the incident occurred some days after the naming ceremony of the newly born baby who is currently under the care of the father.
They were abducted in the early hours of Tuesday at their residence in Saminaka, a community along Gusau-Sokoto road in Gusau, the State capital.
An eyewitness told DAILY POST that “the armed bandits broke the wall of the victims’ apartment and forced their way inside.
“They asked for the husband, and as they could not get the husband, the terrorists whisked away the wife and her eldest son to an unknown destination.”
DAILY POST learnt that the husband of the victim is a Lecturer at the Federal College of Technology, FCET Gusau.
The abduction was coming two days after abductors of four female Students of Zamfara State College of Arts and Science, released video of the hostages and threatened to give them out in marriage if twelve million Naira ransom was not paid within a week
All efforts to obtain reaction from the State’s Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, ASP Yazid Abubakar proved abortive as he was not answering calls as of the time of filing this report.
