In Zamfara State, northwest Nigeria, four armed bandits kidnapped a businessman known as Haji Isiya while they were dressed as Muslim ladies wearing the jijab.

According to PRNigeria, the event happened on Monday between 9:30 and 10:00 pm in the Hayi community of the state’s Maru Local Local Government Area.

A source told PRNigeria that the terrorists stormed the area in a convoy of about three motorcycles.

“After invading Haji Isiya’s residence, they thereafter abducted him before any intervention could come from the security personnel.

“The armed bandits, who were dressed in hijab, left immediately with Isiya, and were reported to have been seen at Karakkai axis. Only God knows where they eventually took him to.

“But security agencies have already launched an investigation into the incident. They will surely facilitate his rescue,” he said.

PRNigeria reports that recently a Divisional Police Officer, in Maru town, DP Kazeem Raheem was killed when he attempted to repel an attack by bandits.

Raheem who was killed in gunfight alongside a police sergeant and a vigilante, had mobilised security personnel to foil an attempt to kidnap a businessman in the area.
