“Many travellers must have been kidnapped or escaped into the bush as we saw at least fifteen cars parked and empty when we passed the scene of the attack.”

A statement on Monday by the Commissioner for Internal Security, Samuel Aruwan, said the bandits killed one person and kidnapped scores of travellers during the attack.

Aruwan revealed that eleven persons had been rescued from the assailants.

The commissioner identified the deceased as the Chairman and CEO of Famaks British School and former governorship aspirant in Zamfara State, Muhammad Sagir Hamidu.
