Sokoto police confirm abduction of 15 pupils, woman


The Sokoto State Police Command has confirmed the abduction of 15 Islamic education pupils and a woman in Gidan Bakuso, a village in the Gada Local Government Area of the state.

The spokesperson for the command, ASP Ahmad Rufa’i, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Sokoto that the abduction took place in the early hours of Saturday.

He said the invaders took advantage of the village’s remote location to perpetrate their evil acts.

Rufa’i identified the lack of access roads to some villages as one of the major challenges faced by security agencies in the state, saying that it frustrated a swift response to the incident.

He said that the command’s tactical team had been mobilised to rescue the victims, insisting that the security agencies were currently on top of the situation.

He appealed to members of the public to assist the security agencies with any relevant information that could assist ongoing rescue efforts.
