Bandits have abducted the District Head of Adabka in Bukkuyum Local Government Area of Zamfara State, Alhaji Nafiu Shehu.

A resident of the town, Alhaji Mohammed Nasir, told The Punch  that the bandits who were on motorcycles came to the district head’s palace by 12.30 am on Saturday where they kidnapped him and one of his housemaids.

According to him, after they kidnapped the District Head, they spent some hours in the village.

“It was very surprising, these gunmen only entered into the District Head’s palace and whisked him and his maid away without abducting or killing anybody.

“We were all surprised. People were running helter-skelter on sighting the bandits who were carrying AK-47 rifles, but they didn't touch anybody,” he said.

According to him, the kidnap of the District Head came barely a week after the police mobile personnel attached to the area were withdrawn.

When contacted, the police spokesperson, Mohammed Shehu, said, “I will get back to you”.
