The number of Nigerien nationals rescued in the ongoing peace process in Zamfara State is now ten
The number significantly increased with the securing of eight more from Zurmi Emirate and handed over to Sarkin Zamfaran Zurmi, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Handing over the foreign nationals, along with fifteen others to the Commissioner of Police in Gusau, Alhaji Usman Nagogo, the Emir said the victims were abducted more than a month ago.
The Emir told the Police Commissioner that the bandits willingly handed over the abductees to him unconditionally as part of the ongoing peace process initiated by the present administration in the state.
“The bandits now believe in the sincerity of this administration to keep to its words.”
“I recall that I made a similar move by advising the former administration of Abdulazeez Yari, but that administration categorically told me it had no interest or intention to dialogue with anyone” Sarkin Zamfaran Anka said.
The number of those rescued from the bandits since the peace process started has now reached 300 persons.
