In the early hours of Friday, bandits attacked Sabon Gida village in Zamfara State and kidnapped several students from the Federal University Gusau while they were in their hostels.
According to some sources in Sabon-Gida, “The gunmen invaded the community around 3 am and started shooting sporadically.
“They entered the town around 3 am and started shooting indiscriminately. We have yet to confirm the number of students kidnapped because the bandits entered three hostels and kidnapped all the students there. It is difficult to ascertain their numbers now.
“They were seriously engaged with the army troops but the way these bandits operate, they will divide themselves into two, one group will move with the kidnapped victims while the other will stay behind to protect the first group.”
They added, “The first group had left with the students while the second group engaged the army in a gun duel.”
However, according to reports from the security and intelligence platform, Eons Intelligence, the assailants infiltrated three hostel buildings by breaking in through the windows.
Eons Intelligence shared the alarming news on their verified X platform (formerly Twitter), stating that, “A significant number of armed bandits, wielding dangerous weapons, attacked Sabon Gida village in Zamfara state, at about 0300hrs of today.
During the attack, an unspecified number of students from the Federal University Gusau, including female students, were abducted.
“The assailants gained access to three separate hostels and kidnapped all the students within,” the post read.
It was gathered that Sabon Gida village is located close to the Federal University’s permanent site in the State.
