The police in Zamfara have announced the rescue of 41 persons kidnapped last week by armed bandits in Maru Local Government Area of the state.

The Commissioner of Police, Shaba Alkali, made the announcement on Wednesday in Gusau while addressing journalists.

He said that the 41 kidnapped victims including a police inspector from the state command were returned in good condition of health, adding that no ransom was paid to facilitate their release.

He explained that `security strategic measures’ employed by joint security personnel who mounted pressure on the hoodlums facilitated the safe return of the victims.

Mr. Alkali warned armed bandits operating in the state to relocate or surrender, saying “very soon we are going to come out in full force to fight them.”

The abductors had earlier told Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara to release 400 cows recovered from them by the joint security patrol before they would release the 41 victims.
