“The traders were coming back to Tangaza from Balle in two commercial vehicles. They rammed into a roadblock mounted by the bandits, who ordered them out of the vehicles and whisked them away.

“As at last Friday, nothing had been heard about them but the vehicles are still there at the spot of the abduction.”

Some of the villages had been deserted for fear of attack and it was further gathered that there been series of kidnappings in Tangaza and Gudu Local Government Areas, especially at night.

The Source Added;

“There is a village called Garin Alfarma that was deserted by most of its residents who relocated to Gidan Madi, the headquarters of Tangaza Council Area for fear of the hoodlums.

“They (bandits) usually operate in the night. They come to remote places that we cannot reach in time due to their terrain, abduct their victims and run away.”
Spokesman of the Sokoto State Police Command, ASP Muhammad Sadiq who confirmed the development said a joint patrol has been initiated in the area.
