Many students of the Federal University Gusau, Zamfara State have been kidnapped by Bandits who reportedly invaded the village in the early hours of Friday (today).
The Daily Vendor gathered that a significant number of students were abducted during the invasion.
An indigene of Sabon Gida village, Abubakar Sani, revealed that the bandits, who were in large numbers, stormed the students’ off-campus residences in the village. He said the students abducted were mostly females.
Sani said the bandits invaded the area around 4:00am on Friday, where they attacked three students’ hostels.
He said, “Many of the kidnapped students were females, while other students were able to escape to the bush”.
According to Sani, the bandits only abducted the university students but did not abduct any residents of the village.
He said, “When they arrived the village, they went straight to the students [off campuses] and started shooting sporadically”.
“They later broke into the campuses and brought a number of students who are mostly females”.
The university authority and the state police command both declined to comment.
