The victims were rescued by operatives of the Kaduna State Police Command in the Kachia Local Government Area of the state.

He said the victims were abducted by the bandits in Mai Goro Village in Kachia on Sunday and taken to an unknown destination.

The command’s spokesman stated that the victims were found by police operatives during a routine patrol on Tuesday around the bush in Tsohon Gayan Village.

“The victims are identified as Godiya James, 30yrs; Beauty Mandela, 23yrs; Elizabeth Markus, 13yrs; Alheri Maichibi, 13yrs; Lydia Iliya, 6yrs; Bridget Obadiah, 4yrs; and Amama Hassan, 3yrs; all of Mai Goro Village, Kachia LGA,” he said.

They were said to have been immediately evacuated to the Toll Gate Divisional Police Headquarters, and when debriefed, they claimed to have escaped from captivity while the bandits guarding them were asleep.

Jalige said that all the rescued persons were stable but weak, adding that they have been profiled and taken to a medical facility for treatment with efforts ongoing to establish contact with their relations for proper handing over.
