Troops rescue 10 farmers abducted by terrorists in Zamfara

Nigerian military troops have rescued 10 people abducted by terrorists in Zamfara State.

The rescued persons, who are farmers were kidnapped recently.

“They were working on their farms, when a group of bandits attacked them, and took 10 of them away,” a local source in Zamfara told PRNigeria.

But it was learnt that the farmers regained their freedom while troops were carrying out a search and rescue operation.

A military officer involved in the operation told PRNigeria: “The bandits abandoned their captives at Tsafe Local Government Area when they noticed our troops approaching their hideouts.

“The abductees revealed that terrorists fled when they heard that troops were closing in on them”.

However, the victims have been united with their families, after receiving treatment at the Tsafe General Hospital.
