Over 20 people have been abducted by bandits in furfuri community, Bungudu local government area of zamfara state on sunday night around 11pm.
Among those abducted were two wives of a former accountant-general of zamfara state Abu bello furfuri, his two children and domestic staff.
However, source said the two wives hajia khadijat and hajia Ade were rescued by men of vigilante group in the area while the others are still held by the bandit.
The two abducted daughters are Zulaihat Abu bello and Zainab Abu bello. Abdullai shehu, a resident of Bungudu town, said that the bandits attacked the community on sunday night and went straight to the former accountant-general’s abode.
“He (former accountant-general) lives with his family in Furfuri even when he was in office, so it’s possible the attack was a deliberate one because they went straight to his house when they entered the community,” he said.
Shehu claimed that other houses were also attacked and eight siblings were also among those abducted by the kidnappers.
“What we know now is that 18 residents are with the bandits including Zulaihat and Zainab and three other domestic staff taken from the former AG (accountant-general) house. Seven of them were taken but with the rescue of the two wives, he now has five people to save. The remaining 13 people were picked from other houses. They could be more than that but for now, this is what we’ve gathered.”
