Gunmen Abduct 60 in Nigeria’s Northwest

Suspected Kidnappers Attack Genuine Estate, Gwarimpa (News Central TV)

At least 60 people have been kidnapped by gunmen in Magami Tandu community of the Kaura Namoda local government, Zamfara state on Thursday, November 24, in the latest wave of abductions to hit the Northwestern state.

Armed attacks are common in parts of the northwest where bandits attack or kidnap for ransom, and violence has been increasing as thinly stretched security forces often fail to stop attacks.

Some residents said the gunmen on motorbikes arrived in the Magami Tandu on Wednesday evening and shot sporadically.
