Troops of the Nigerian military have rescued three abducted persons on Zaria-Kano Road.

Kaduna State’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr. Samuel Aruwan made the disclosure in a statement he issued on Thursday in Kaduna.

“Security agencies have reported that three persons were rescued by troops conducting patrols around Ungwan Namama, along the Zaria-Kano road.

“According to the feedback, the troops came in contact with migrating bandits in the area and engaged them, forcing them to abandon their three captives as they hastily escaped.

“The troops rescued the victims. Investigations revealed that the captives were kidnapped in a neighbouring state.

“Also recovered from the bandits were nine rustled animals, comprising one cow and eight sheep,’’ the commissioner stated.

Aruwan added that the rescued persons had been reunited with their families.

The recovered animals, he added, were handed to local authorities for proper identification and claims, he stated.
