Law enforcers conducted lengthy negotiations with the militants, forcing them to unconditionally release the people.

In Nigeria, police and security services were able to free more than 100 local residents from militants who were kidnapped in June in the northwestern state of Zamfara.

This was said by the spokesman for the region’s police Mohammed Shehu on Wednesday, July 21.

At a press conference in Guso, the capital of Zamfara state, he said that a group of militants attacked the village of Manawa in Maru District on June 8 and abducted 100 local residents, mostly women and children. 

It could be recalled that on the 8th June 2021 some recalcitrant Bandits stormed Manawa village and abducted 100 villagers including females, majority nursing mothers, males and children.

Police and security forces negotiated with the militants, forcing them to unconditionally release the residents.

The Zamfara State Police in collaboration with the State Ministry for Security and Home Affairs have successfully secured the unconditional release of the kidnapped victims

The released victims who were in the custody of their abductors for 42 Days have been released without giving any financial or material gain and they will be medically checked and debriefed before being reunited with their respective families.

The Commissioner of Police, CP Hussaini Rabiu, warned the Recalcitrant bandits to renounce criminalities and embrace peace or face the full wrath of the law.

Shehu urged the local population to promptly inform law enforcement and security forces about the whereabouts and actions of the militants.

Recall that over the past few months in a number of areas of Nigeria there have been attacks, which led to the death, injury and abduction of a large number of people.

So, on July 10, it was reported that in the state of Zamfara, militants raided five villages, during which they killed at least 43 people.
