Insecurity in Nigeria is getting out of hand. No one is safe anymore. Since a traditional ruler could be kidnapped, the fate of his subjects are in the hands of God almighty?

Seven hours ago, news broke of the abduction of the Emir of Bungudu, Zamfara state,  Alhaji Hassan Atto, and an unspecified number of commuters, along the Kaduna – Abuja highway.

The Kaduna Police Command has confirmed the incident. According to a statement issued by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige: “Today, Sept 14, at about 3.10 pm, the Kaduna Police Command received a tragic report of an attack and kidnapping incident around Dutse village along the Kaduna-Abuja road.

“An unspecified number of people were suspected to have been kidnapped, while two others sustained varying degrees of injuries and are currently receiving medical treatment.

“Equally, available information indicated that the Emir of Bungudu, Zamfara State, His Royal Highness (HRH) Alhaji Hassan Atto, is among the people abducted to an unknown destination,” he said.

Reports reaching the command indicated that the commuters were intercepted by the bandits, who fired shots at random, before abducting their victims.

 

He said operatives of the command were dispatched to restore normalcy in the area, as a result  of which an officer paid the supreme price.

Jalige added that four vehicles were recovered from the scene, but that the exact number of persons kidnapped was yet to be ascertained.

 

Meanwhile, a reinforcement team had  been dispatched to the area, with a view to rescuing the victims unhurt, Jalige also said. (NAN).
