Bandits have kidnapped three children of Zamfara State Sub-treasurer, Alhaji Yusuf Marafa, and also killed his neighbour in Nahuche town in the Bungudu local government area of Zamfara State.
The kidnapped children are Mansur Yusuf, Sa’adu Yusuf and Anas Yusuf, while his neighbour, Malam Kamalu Nahuche, was shot dead.
An indigene of the area, Alhaji Dahiru, told The Punchthat the bandits, who were on motorcycles, came into the town and went straight to the sub-treasurer’s house, where they whisked away the three children.
His neighbour, Kamalu, was reportedly shot dead as he came out of his house.
Dahiru narrated that the bandits had also entered into the house of one Ibrahim Maishago, who is a businessman, in an attempt to kidnap his children.
“But they discovered some large sum of money in the house, which they collected and went away, leaving the children.
The state Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Shehu, said armed policemen had already been deployed to the affected area to restore normalcy.
