A North Korean medical doctor, Mr. Jeng Sunail, attached to the General Hospital in Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State, has been abducted by gunmen.
This was confirmed in a statement on Tuesday by the spokesperson for the state Police command, DSP Shehu Mohammed.
According to the statement, the disappearance of Sunail was reported at the Tsafe Divisional Police Office by one of his colleagues, Dr. Li Dong.
An indigene of the area also told Channels Television that some armed men had invaded the staff quarters of the Tsafe General Hospital at about 9:00 pm on Monday and went straight to Sunail’s apartment where he was abducted to an unknown destination.
