Unknown gunmen on Friday night invaded the headquarters of Bukkuyum local Government Area of Zamfara state, shooting sporadically, chasing away residents and whisking away the Emir of Bukkuyum, Mohammed Usman.
Details of the incident are still sketchy but witnesses say the attackers confiscated the Emir’s telephone handsets and then ordered him to board their vehicle.
They then drove him away to an unknown destination.
The Zamfara Police Command could not be reached for comments at this time, but the state Commissioner for Information, Ibrahim Magaji, confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria.
