Bandits kidnap students of Gusau university. Bandits are said to have kidnapped a large number of students from the Federal University of Gusau in Zamfara State in the early hours of Friday (today).

An indigene of Sabon Gida village, Abubakar Sani, told The PUNCH that they, 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”.

Both the university administration and the state police command declined to comment.
