At least, nine senior police officers kidnapped in Kastina by armed bandits  have been rescued.

The Nigeria police force announced the rescue of the  officers.

Recall that the officers were on their way to Gusau in Zamfara from Maiduguri when they were kidnapped between Kankara town and Sheme in Katsina State.

In a statement on Friday, November 20, Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Frank Mba, said nine officers were abducted and not 12 as was earlier reported. He said the Nigeria Police had successfully rescued the nine Police officers who earlier went missing on 8th November, 2020 between Kankara town and Sheme in Katsina State after the night commercial bus they were traveling in came under attack by heavily armed men, all dressed in Military Camouflage, but suspected to be bandits.

“The officers, all Assistant Superintendents of Police (ASPs), were on their way to Gusau in Zamfara State from Maiduguri at the time of the incident.

“Two of the officers are currently receiving medical attention in a hospital, while the remaining seven are being debriefed.”
