On Friday, gunmen suspected of being bandits raided Mereri village in Gusau, the capital of Zamfara State, kidnapping the wife of Dr AbdulRazaq, a lecturer at the Federal College of Education (Technical) Gusau, as well as his two daughters, Maryam AbdulRazaq and Hafsat AbdulRazaq.

Many things, including money, were plundered in the Mareri village, which is located on the outskirts of the state capital, according to eyewitness testimony.

Speaking with newsmen, one of the neighbours of the lecturer who claimed anonymity for security reasons, said the bandits stormed the house with sophisticated weapons and began to shoot sporadically.

The source said some of them came barefooted and got access to the area through a forest linking other villages known as Geba, Jajjayen and Kwanar Mai communities in Gusau.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mohammad Shehu, said an investigation is ongoing and when confirmed he will communicate to newsmen for more details.
