Posted by Samuel on Wed 17th Aug, 2022 - tori.ng

Agrarian communities in the state have long been terrorised by gangs who raid villages, steal cattle and kidnap residents for ransom.

The Divisional Police Officer of Magami Division, Gusau Local Government of Zamfara State, Usman Ali, who was abducted recently, has been released.

He was abducted and released by gunmen suspected to be terrorists.

Ali was released on Tuesday night by the gunmen.

Though the Zamfara State government claimed to have secured his release, sources told SaharaReporters that the Deputy Superintendent of Police regained his freedom after the payment of an unspecified ransom by his friends and family members.

Deadly attacks have raged across Zamfara state where bandits have thrived.

Agrarian communities in the state have long been terrorised by gangs who raid villages, steal cattle and kidnap residents for ransom.

In 2019, the state government signed a peace agreement with the gunmen.

About 15 brand new Hilux vehicles and cash gifts were also given to leaders of different “repentant” gangs of bandits by the governor in 2020.

But despite all these, communities in the state are still being attacked and residents kidnapped and/or killed.
