Suspected gunmen have reportedly kidnapped a wife of Dr AbdulRazaq, a lecturer with Federal College of Education (Technical) Gusau, and his two daughters, Maryam AbdulRazaq and Hafsat AbdulRazaq, in Gusau, the Zamfara State capital on Friday.
According to some eyewitness accounts, many properties including money were looted in the Mareri community, an outskirt of the state capital.
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 told Daily Post that 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.
