Many students have been abducted by terrorists in Tsafe town, the headquarters of Tsafe Local Government Area of (LGA), Zamfara State.
SaharaReporters confirmed from multiple sources that the terrorists, locally dubbed as bandits, raided Tsafe town on Tuesday night and abducted a lot of students of the College of Health Technology, including females living off-campus.
"The victims were mostly female students," one of the sources noted.
Recall that some days ago, bandits invaded Tsafe and killed three persons, including the son of Mamman Tsafe, the Commissioner for Security and Home Affairs in Zamfara and a retired Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG).
